Bright And Bold

I started two flower paintings on canvas yesterday.  I thought you might enjoy seeing the beginning stages.

I enjoyed adding texture to my first layer using a natural sea sponge.  After the first layer dried, I drew a quick sketch in pencil and then painted around my shapes.

Here is the first one:

And my bright and bold second one:

I didn’t have to work yesterday so I painted most of the day.  It was AWESOME!!  A great thing to do on a rainy day.  I look forward to having more time to finish them this weekend.

Have a Fabulous Friday!!

Cheers!  🙂
