Callas WIP

I'm not sure where this is going. I have already lifted some colors, since this photo was taken, from the not fully opened flowers. It appears rather dark in the upper right. The photo is darker than the actual painting, but i still have a lot of negotiating to do. I have to find my way.

I will for sure paint another study of Callas.

Completed Iris

I completed my iris painting this morning. This pinks began to take control so i tried to make them more subtle with some orange.
I also began a painting of Calla Lilies inspired by the bouquets at my son's wedding.
Happy times.

painting 013

Purples have always been a challenge. More than any other color they get dull and lose their intensity. I need to work on this a bit more, just not over work it.

Painting with friends at our newly formed art class, i was able to work with some new paint. Intoxicating and inviting my minds eye was taken over by the colors irresistible merging.

I am thankful for the distraction.
