Happy New Year one and all! We are officially out of the noughts!
Here's my last project of '09:
A dear old friend decided she wanted a flower series painting of her own, so here it is! It's 18 x 36" and titled Forsythia. I often enjoy a green colour range for this subject matter, but I find it a challenging colour to work with. Since my little basement nook of a studio has one small window that looks out onto the neighbour's foundation, the natural light leaves something to be desired. I've found I need to check each stage of the painting by taking the canvas outside during the day to make sure the colours look how I'd like them to. Makes me dream of a studio with storage and skylights. A dream for coming decades, perhaps?
