Painting Retreat

August 1, 2008 at 12:38 pm (Decorative Painting)

Yesterday, I spent the day painting.  It was a great day!!  Of course, I can’t paint continually, because of my eyes, but I painted, took a break, painted, took a nap… you get the picture.  I decided to paint a Dutch Floral from David Jansen, MDA’s book,  Floral Techniques, Vol 1.  I didn’t get as far as I wanted, because I had to sand the first two versions!!   I am only as far as the grisaille — color assigning will come another day.  I think I’m on the right track!!! {{Fingers crossed}}

Grisaille -- Med Beige, Med White, Titanium White

With Indian Yellow and Quin Gold shadows

I also finished my Rose Watercolor Study… 

I didn’t have to “scrub” out the highlights!!  I remembered to keep the white paper showing.  I’m learning!!!
