I’ve been loving Spring! The weather has been glorious, and today’s deep blue sky was without a cloud. The blossoms are out, and there’s a real buzz in the air! My husband and I went for a walk on the beach, then home to finish my painting.
I just love daisies and these were beckoning to be painted.
In the last week or so I have taken myself back to basics and have engrossed myself in colour combinations, exploring different palettes and their possibilities.
These daisies were painted on Arches 300gsm cold-pressed, approx 27cm x 37cm, using several layers of masking fluid and soft washes. The anticipation of removing masking fluid is both exciting and daunting as it reveals the next chapter in the process. Some gouache came to the rescue and I was quite happy with the final result.
