...and some transparent yellow

added some alizarin and transparent yellow


I’m enjoying experimenting with this one. I’ve decided to do a classic layer and a ‘messed’ up layer alternatively. These colours will slowly disappear underneath but you will sense their presence still at the end. Ive sprinkled some thinner on also to break up the solid colour a little. Beautiful sunny day here in Sydney. xx

Beautiful sunny day here in Sydney and I’ve had a great day painting (and doing the washing!). Still seems there’s a way to go on the Hydrangea, i had to bring it into the house to get another perspective. More layers to come. xx

Spent this afternoon adding some light details (or as i like to call them – ‘bones’) to the new hydrangea painting. These will gradually disappear until they are barely visible under the layers of transparent and opaque colours. I am so excited about doing this painting! I just love the colours!!

Have a great weekend all. xx
