Spider Bouquet

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.

Feburary Tulips

                                        This floral study of Tulips I did earlier in February.

Cindy & her Goldens

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.
