Painting Makeover 02

AFTER
image

This palette knife painting represents a rose from memory. In the BEFORE version I was satisfied with the composition, but not the colors I don’t know why I use the dull brown. Anyway, I looked at it today by chance, and thought I want to fix this. The texture has a bit different effect covering over the top of existing texture but I’m glad I went for it! I may try this again from scratch sometime.

Spring Brings Begonias

On my easel today is a painting of Begonias, stirred into action by the Spring fever I’m feeling. 6″x6″ stretch Gallery Wrap Canvas.

One thing I look forward to every Spring is my first trip to Medary Acres, our local Nursery. This is where I went looking for my subject.

Posing with my subject is a persistent Merlin the Cat. I’ve just decided he should be the star of a new painting, coming soon!
