Nasturtiums are going to nestle around the base of the fountain. My color mixes are #1. Cadmium Orange + Cadmium Yellow Medium. #2. Pure Cadmium Orange. #3. Alizarin Crimson + a touch of Cadmium Red Light. #4. Cadmium Red Light + a little Alizarin Crimson. #5. Cadmium Orange + Cadmium Red Light. #6. The greens for the leaves are all mixed from various proportions of Pthalo Blue + little Cadmium Orange + Cadmium Yellow Medium + White.

Following my usual sequence the flowers are blocked in first. The blossom color is just randomly “smooshed” together to make the mass of flowers.

The rounded leaves are painted next. The mixes of green are used to help shape the individual Nasturtium blossoms. Then the thin stems are added with a fine liner brush.

Now for the large containers by St. Francis. Here you can see the sequence of painting the flowers more clearly, the container on the right has the red Geraniums blocked in. On the left I’ve already added the Geranium leaves and am now working on the Magenta Angelonia.

Sweet Potato Vine drapes out of the dark blue containers. A bit more Cadmium Yellow Medium and White are added to the greens left over from the Nasturtiums to use for the heart shaped leaves. A medium sized Bright (Square) brush is used to delineate the foliage.

Wouldn’t you love to wake up in the morning and walk out into this courtyard? Sit on the little bench under St. Francis and enjoy the music of the fountain as you sip your coffee! Can’t you just hear the chirping of the birds as they perch on the Silver Lace cascading over the adobe walls? What a great beginning to the day! The Showstopper for my annual collector event is done! To see it larger just click on the image. Hope you can come to Santa Fe and join in the fun! Mark the dates on your calendar, September 4 and 5.

    I love the play between the bright sunlight and shadows on the Adobe. The blue tiles and orange flowers are just brilliant. Beautiful as always-thanks for sharing. Viewing your paintings is like going on vacation.

    Absolutely Gorgeous Mikki. I just love the blues you make and the way you do flowers. I remind myself practice practic practice. Thoroughly enjoyed Jacks article and video. As my youngest son is in Texas at the moment with his wife’s family for a holiday, I keep seeing all the lovely pictures on facebook. Thank you for your blog. Many Blessings. Alison
