Latin Lover - Tall bearded iris

SOLD



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.
P.S.

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. 
P.S.
Painting is easy when you don't know how, but very difficult when you do.
