5"x 7" oil on artist board
I'm working on another web painting challenge. This one is from the Paint and Draw Together blog. Besides painting the picture, we are asked to make a pleasing background for the tulip. Me, I prefer a solid almost black backdrop, but it is an official challenge so I'll try and stretch a little.
So far, as you can see, I've only blocked in the base colours. This is always my favourite step in the painting process. Within a few minutes I can see the subject taking form. Once this is done the painting starts calling to me... finish me ... finish me.
Well I gotta go. There's a painting yelling at me.
