For the next couple of months i’m taking a break from the old mud room, and will be doing other stuff, like napping (Joking!), painting, exploring other ideas. So, i thought i’d start doing a blog now and then about the progress of some of the paintings.
First of all, what’s with all this weather….everywhere on the news it is the main topic, and no wonder! Right now our road looks like a frozen river….very beautiful and shiny, but we haven’t been able to go anywhere for the past 2 days!
Been watching lots of videos and reading other fabulous blogs about pastel painting, i am seriously addicted….and am presently waiting, very impatiently, for some lovely new Ludwig pastels that i ordered on line!!!
anyway, today i spent a wonderful few hours painting this image.
i took this shot while i was visiting Morgan in Vancouver, and i loved the light.
So my under painting, using water colour started here!
I’m quite pleased with the end result, but of course i can see where i could have done things differently. it was too late for me to make a change in the shape of the chair….just too damn impatient to get started ! i think i need to slow down a bit at the very beginning!
Anyway, i’m loving it.
