It's done! *jumps up and down then claps*. Saturday found me at the easel painting for hours. I didn't of course feel like hours, I was in the zone and enjoying every second. It had been awhile since I took the time to mix just the right colors as I have so many tubes of color that I rarely need to make my own. My favorite way of making a palette is to cover a dinner plate with aluminum foil. Not only is it quick and free, but its also a simple clean up!
Obviously the writing is not on the actual piece, just a watermark for internet protection :)
Here are a bunch of close ups which is a portrayal of the Heirloom Peonie variety called the Felix Crousse. I'm so pleased with every little detail of this bright and vibrant painting.
So? What do you think?
Here I go... off to email pictures to the jury committee!
