May 2010 - Spring from Paint and Draw together
Finally spring...oil on board 6" x 8"
My first choice would have been a dark green background, similar to the photo.
But the assigment was to personnalize the backround, so I choose for myself ;) the ouside wall of my house. It is a mix of chalk, shells and some rusty color. I pushed the flow of stone toward the center of the painting.
The other thing I did was to tilt a little the leave to let the flower alone against the wall.
I am quite happy with stem and leaves, but i find the petals quite muddy now that I see them posted. :(
So for this one it is: back to the easel.
