The sky is painted first, then I begin on the Cardinals. Jack and I love these beautiful red birds. We have a pair, Mr. and Mrs. Chippers, that hang around our garden. I work wet-into-wet so Mr. Chippers’ wings fade into the background, giving the impression of movement. You can click on the image to see it larger.

Now I start on the Angel’s wings and wavy hair.

I bring out a couple of special colors, Cerulean Blue and Terra Rosa, for the skin tones. #1. Cerulean Blue + White. #2. Terra Rosa + White. #3. Terra Rosa + more White. #4. Terra Rosa + MUD (Ultramarine Blue + Alizarin Crimson) + White. #5. Terra Rosa + Cadmium Red Light + White. #6. Mix #5 + more White.

Most of the face is painted with mixtures #2, #3, and #4. Mixes #5 and #6 are used for the Angel’s cheeks. The Cerulean Blue mixture is used on lower edge of the jaw line to help give the feeling of roundness. My wrist is braced on a mahl stick to steady my hand as I paint the details on the face. And since many of you have asked, Yes I did model for the angel!

The bouquet of Roses is painted with mixes of Cadmium Red Deep + Magenta. Highlights on the fragrant flowers will be made with Cadmium Red Light.
