First up: a still life with dahlias.
I got the bouquet from the farmers market, stuck them in a ginger jar and got to work. I had to paint over a canvas so I found an old 50/50 painting (fifty percent good, fifty percent so-so) and laid in the set up and the background.
Unfortunately at this point in the painting real life intervened and I was not able to get back to them for a week. Needless to say, the bouquet was long gone, but luckily I got a lot of the flowers in and I can probably finish the rest from memory.
Meanwhile, I have been painting another still life in Gregg's studio.
I thought this was finished, but then I looked at it last night and realized that I forgot to put the pattern on the shadow area on the right.
Since I thought the above painting was finished, I started a new one yesterday.
So that is what has been going on over here. Crazy, I know, but sometimes these things happen. The nice thing is that soon I will have three complete paintings to show you.
Have a great day everybody!
