Blue and Green
September 9, 2009 § 1 Comment
(I Heart) blue and green together in a painting! Its been such a delight to get into the studio (aka garage) and paint this morning. It’s been a while since i have been able to pick up my brushes but today in 4 hours i managed to lay down the first layer of colour in the first of a series of 4 Hydrangea paintings. This is the stage that looks very flat. Basically i lay down the mid tone of each petal so that when dry i can add another layer, each layer adding more detail and depth. I reckon they look like ‘Kindergarten’ pictures at this stage!
