This bouquet I also painted in February.I took the reference photo for this looking down on the flowers and the vase from above to exaggerate the pedals of the mums.The carnations and white rose diminish in the grander of the mums.I did several light washes on one petal at a time.
I did this painting for a nurse I work with. It is of her with her dog and her daughters dog. It was a fun painting to work on.for the flesh tones I used a mixture of Cad. red, lemon yellow and yellow ochre; alizarin crimson and burnt sienna; and for the shadows cad red,burnt sienna and cobolt blue.the dogs fur was light washes of yellow ochre and the second dog had some terra rose added.
I am mainly a watercolor and Pastel artist but I am open to various mediums.
I have been painting since 1992.
I have travelled alot and have sold works and prints internationally. My works have also won awards. I used to be a member and for a short time president of a local art club however I found the Politics and Personalities interfered too much with my time that could be put into my work.
I live on the east coast of Canada and I paint our local beauty as well as the Carribean and the Mediterranean.
