I was awarded 3rd Place in my Hometown’s Annual Exhibit with this painting today. I’m thankful, you never know what jurors are going to like.

I’m enjoying Spring and the flowers it brings! It doesn’t hurt to use up the Reds that I mixed either! I hope your able to stop and smell the flowers!

Painting Makeover 02

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.

Warm vs. Cold WIP

image

I love color!!! Today, I’m doing an experiment with warm and cold underpaintings. The first is Cobalt Blue with gesso, and the second is Cadmium Red with a little Burnt Sienna. The grayscale photo shows they are of the same tone. I will paint the same lilly pads with flower on each. Hopefully I can post at least one of them later today.
