The painting is of my dog Benji who is a living watercolor. He is tricolored and I thought the darks and lights in this photo would make a good painting.He is hard to paint because he has so much undefined hair.He is my pride and joy
This was a wet in wet effort-my favorite method of painting. I have a bush of Rose of Sharon growing in front of my studio window. I look at the beautiful flowers every day. I could not resist painting such beauties. They are beautiful at all times of the day.
I started this painting as a wet in wet watercolor. The washes suggested flowers.Since I have been wanting to paint sunflowers, I decided to work with these beautiful yellows. I have been looking at sunflowers in my yard all summer.
I love to paint and try to do so every day. I am having immense fun blogging. I love being in touch with so many good artists and seing their art. I learn a lot about painting this way. I especially enjoy participating in the challenges.
