Latin Lover - Tall bearded iris


Well, it's hard to stop myself and take pictures of the steps!! Once I get into the painting past the block in stage I get too focused.  I better set one of those annoying egg timers to buzz me to stop and take another photo!! Oh boy.
I hope this helps someone to see at least how I blocked in the greens and pinks and then went on to add the opaque colors.  And the last step is adding the smallest details.

Playful Pansies

Just love painting pansies!  I felt like these looked very playful, all the different colors and even the way they are in various directions in the jar.  Happy Monday friends!  Hope this is a good week painting and playing at your easel!

Sunflowers & Lilies

Painted from my slightly warm Arizona studio!  Thanks to "Instacollage" an app I just downloaded I could make this neat little picture.

Roses Still life painting steps

So next time I'll try to remember to take more pictures if more steps but I hope seeing the process helps a little.  I try to always start with transparent colors.  
I move thin to thick with the paint.  
I will post more step by step paintings soon.  Have a great day!

Still Life with Tulips

It's Monday.  What can I say it was hard to wake up and get going today.  After getting the kiddos to school I came home to teach a few very nice group how to paint still life.  Everyone always ends up teaching me!  I learn new things and when I teach I find I remind myself of things I may have forgotten in my painting process.  So all in all it was a great time.  
Hope you have a good time at your easel. 
Painting is easy when you don't know how, but very difficult when you do.
