Geraniums, 16x20

Last week's class demo.  I didn't quite finish it until that evening but you can see the steps at Diana Kingsley's blog.  I like doing demonstration paintings because an audience keeps me from thinking too much and focused on just intuitively slapping paint around.  Sometimes it works.

This class is about painting from photos and making them believable.  In Diana's photos you can see that I was using two sources to get the most information.  Outdoor experience, however, is the best source.

  1. Finished or not this is a gem! The background cool color harmony played against the potted flowers warms is a satisfying game for the eyes.


Make a comment. I enjoy hearing what you have to say.
