Cool morning temperatures make the studio a pleasant place!
So, I plan to paint this morning....then move inside and work on a quilt this afternoon!
Recent paintings---- all this last week! Due to cooler summer weather, I think....
Above: almost finished, just a few more flowers for her basket and more definition for her eye. Then I will stop. Word has it that to retain "freshness" in a painting one must stop before it is too polished!
This one too, sunflowers will only need a little more...background work, petal definition and white reflections on the vase.
This still life with peaches is finished....just needs the signature!
I have paid to join an on-going art group with a teacher, Nadine Ripplemeyer. Her input has been invaluable, and I love having others to paint along side!
Here is a photo Nadine took of me with the painting I was working on a couple of weeks ago...
And here is how that painting changed and is finished at last!
Mush lighter, I realized I do not like too much dark in my paintings....!!!
