SUNFLOWERS! Another of my favorites. The large blossoms are blocked in with mixes of Cadmium Yellow Medium + Alizarin Crimson, Cadmium Yellow Medium + a touch of MUD (Ultramarine Blue + Alizarin Crimson) and pure Cadmium Yellow Medium.
After broad leaves are painted and centers added I come back to delineate the individual flower petals illuminated by the warm sunshine.
Sweet Potato Vine cascades from the planter at the entry. Heart shaped shadows cast by the leaves bring a subtle touch of romance to our painting.
The kitty on the window sill is painted with mixes of Ivory Black + White. Highlights of Ultramarine Blue + White shine on his glossy coat. You may click on the picture to see it larger.
Swishing his tail, he’s about ready to leap from his perch by the blue ceramic container.
A pretty little tiger kitten snuggles into the Sweet Potato Vine. She’s intently watching…….
A Butterfly! Nothing gets past these two. Butterflies and lizards BEWARE! The Garden Patrol is ready to protect their territory from any dangerous invaders. It’s been fun having you follow along. Many have asked how I’m doing. Better, thank you. Painting has been a God send. It’s a special connection to Jack and gives me great joy. Our Lord has blessed me with so many wonderful, caring friends like all of you who care. I sincerely appreciate your concern. You are my internet family, helping me discover my new path! HUGS,
