Doing It's Thing

I've been trying to think of a way to paint dead hydrangea. This I started with a w/w, go where you will, wash of quin. gold and quin. siena. I must admit, I like the shapes even at this early stage.

Again, all done w/w, painting groups of petals. I am using quin. pink, alizarin crimson, quin. burnt orange, cobalt blue and indanthrone blue. 

I am at this point now, and am quite excited about how it is coming along.
This will be about 6 x 8 inches when finished.


I am also re-doing this chicken, trying to keep her nice and loose.

I needed something else, something loose, to work on with the larger hydrangea painting.  It's quite a controlled painting, and all those greens are a bit much to look at for long. I also wanted to get out of the old comfort zone and into a smaller format.

As always, your comments are so welcome!

  1. Me parece maravilloso, como todo lo que tu haces. Cuando pintas w/w, mojas todo el papel o solo la parte que vas a pintar? Y que color es quin? La gallina está bellisima tal como esta ahora, muy romántica, como una foto antigua.

  7. Who'd think of painting a dead flower? Great to think outside the box! And the chicken looks just like our Frankie - commonly found wandering around our kitchen! :0)

    I love the chicky. But it does not matter what you choose--- you can make a dab here and a dab there- and suddenly you bring it to life- because you are magical! We love everything you do- everything,,
    Even a wooly caterpillar!
