I’m thinking of sunshine and flowers, while our first blizzard hits. Yesterday our yard was a healthy green. Today it wears a blanket of snow, but it’s pretty too.
The first image is the under painting, and the second is the finished work. 8″x10″ acrylic on canvas board.
I approached this picture by loading the brush as much as I dare and with the least amount of strokes. Although I did go over the background again to get the textures.
I’m going to experiment with more like these.
Happy Mother’s Day!
I usually get spring potted flower’s for my Mom for Mother’s Day, but this time I thought I would paint some that don’t need to be watered, and will last beyond the season.
6×6″ stretched gallery edge canvas.
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.
I made some shading adjustments in the bottom petals. Changed the shape of the petal to the far right to be more pleasing, eventhough that’s not how it looked. Adjusted the color in the background to be warmer, and not distract from the rose. Oil Pastels on 8×10″ hardboard.
