Spring Flowers, both 6 x 8
Gary was out boating. Deb was traveling.....so I borrowed their backyard and Noelle and I spent a quiet hour painting this. So many flowers happen in the Spring and I want to paint them all....probably won't happen, but I'd love to stop time for a bit to do it.
Nancy's Rhodie began in fog which burned off before I was finished so I had to readjust everything for sun. I didn't draw for either of these pieces, preferring to just use burnt sienna to block in some shadow shapes and then carve out the color and light as I went along. For me it makes for a more intuitive approach to painting.
Both were fun and quick.
