Flower Power

All in a day's work...much work to be done
24"x 24" oil on board

Started three new still lifes featuring zinnias, cosmos, and different containers. Last night I underpainted 3 boards and sketched out the paintings.

I only put in around 4 hours of work because the weather is being tempermental with the light changing so rapidly with every passing thunderstorm. Thought I was going to go blind at one point.

The painting above is just the beginning. It's an oil on 24" x 24" gessobord. I hit the "this is the ugliest piece of crap" in record time....maybe an hour. Trying to keep the oranges, fuscias and pinks brilliant is a true challenge. By the end of this session, I started to see a progression from the "crap" stange. hee
