Whispering Wings

Well, we reopened our Church for Worship last weekend and the plan our Team came up with worked wonderfully. Thanks for all of your encouraging comments, support and prayers. Next Saturday and Sunday we are adding another service and moving up to 50% capacity. WHEW, it’s a big task and I’m still SUPER BUSY but have found a few hours to get back to painting. It felt great to step up to the easel again and play with color! Decided to do some small, 6 inch by 6 inch pieces since my time is limited. First step is to sketch my design on the Ampersand Cradled Panel with a thin oil wash of MUD (2 parts Ultramarine Blue + 1 part Alizarin Crimson) + Liquin.

The background is several mixes in different proportions of White + Pthalo Blue + a touch of Lemon Yellow and White + Pthalo Blue. Then the stems of the Lilies are painted, wet into wet, with combinations of Cadmium Yellow Medium + Pthalo Blue + Cadmium Orange + White. Please remember as you read my blog, you may click on any of the images to see them larger.

The Tiger Lilies are made with Cadmium Orange + Cadmium Red Light + Alizarin Crimson, Cadmium Orange + Cadmium Red Light, pure Cadmium Orange and Cadmium Orange + Cadmium Yellow Medium.

“Whispering Wings”     6 inches by 6 inches

My heart dances in delight when I hear the “Whispering Wings” of a Hummingbird, flitting among brilliantly colored flowers swaying in the breeze! Thanks for following along! With Hugs and Smiles,
