Camping this week, I brought out my art suitcase to the picnic table along with a pillow to sit on. Might as well be comfy painting. What do you do to warm up after not painting for a bit? I like to add some brush strokes to paintings that are already started. Summer has been busy and I found I had a few unfinished paintings in my kit from mid summer so I set them up to have a look.
Painting Started and Reference Photo
This one I had started in July as a demo at a market. The whites were masked with tape and I had started it by sponging on some flower colours and a few greens. After evaluating where I wanted to go with the painting, I enjoyed and hour or so adding some darker darks, detailing some flowers and toning down some of the white. This person's hanging baskets have delighted me so much, that I must get a card made and drop it off the next time I am in Kaslo, BC.
