I’ve been without email for a few days! If you’ve emailed and I haven’t responded that’s why. Your correspondence was lost in cyberspace. It’s not been exactly fun getting it all resolved but I’m finally back up and emailing again. WHEW! So thank you for your patience; you may email me again! ALL RIGHT…..let’s get to work. The wildflower field is blocked in with mixes of Cobalt Blue + White and Ultramarine Blue + White.
Bands of Magenta + White and Dioxazine Purple + White flowers are added in the mid portion of the pasture. The ledge rock serving as a road is painted with mixes of Cadmium Orange + Ultramarine Blue + White. MUD (Ultramarine Blue + Alizarin Crimson) is added into the mixtures for the darker shades.
The canvas, mounted to a piece of cardboard, is laid flat on my taboret to paint the bottom edge. You may click on the image to see this larger.
A shot of light slides in behind a clump of Indian Paintbrush interspersed among the Bluebonnets.
Fence posts guarding the opening “Frame” the rustic building and colorful wildflowers. We’ll finish the foreground in our next session. Hope you’ll come help me plant that prickly pear cactus. Bring your heavy leather garden gloves, you’ll need them! HUGS,
