A variation on yesterday’s painting set up.
A lot of stuff to attend to today about the accident 11 months ago…it’s just the gift that keeps on giving. Meanwhile, I managed to paint this nonetheless.
I was going to do a study or several of the sunflower but found it drooped out of the vase….so went with this instead.
Switched the flowers around, and voila, another set up.
So I’ve been trying to be less ambitious in an attempt to be more focused and get through the 30 days…but I couldn’t resist this weird autumnal bunch–with the cross between a sunflower and an artichoke flower?? Strange white green leaves to top off the challenge. Wonder if I’ll continue with this bouquet in some form tomorrow…
This is my first painting for the 30 in 30 Challenge. It’s a variation on yesterday’s post–different background and larger format.
This was done during the July 4th long weekend….a quick sketch made while the sun was close to setting–of the view I have been seeing for over 20 years–of course, ever changing. I did a watercolor first and then jumped into this. I did another one the following day, soon to be posted.
Sunday was much better in terms of sales. I bought a different small bouquet and painted this between selling.
This was the first painting I did on Tuesday night at the PACE 17. The views were stunning if inspiring, perhaps, overly ambitious paintings. I was surprised by how much I managed to get in to this piece.
This is a second version of the painting before. Which do you prefer? I made the flowers closer to the color they actually were in this one.
