Journal of My Work-in-Progress: Painting and Photography
Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog. It's a journal of sorts. It gives me a place to show my work-in-progress for my painting and photography. Comments are welcome --- add one at the end of an entry or email me at BarbBlumer@gmail.com.
This week I played with this painting. I started it two summers ago. It is based on a photograph that I took in 2006 with C and C when we were driving back from PA, and stopped at a farmstand on the backroads. These flowers were for sale.
It's on multimedia artboard and I now realize that I painted on the wrong side. It absorbed the paint like crazy and looked almost like pastels. Anyway, I first started painting on our deck at the lake, using my vivid oil paints from Mexico. And it looked like this.
This week I worked on the flowers to create more detail and dimension. And cleaned up some of the confusion in the background. And added color to the basket. I like the bright happy colors of this painting and the unusual composition. I feel like I am in the middle of the bouquet.
