When I took all those photographs of my veggie haul I wasn't thrilled with most of them. I even had a few I didn't bother printing out. This photo was one of those I had no intention of painting from. Well, lookie here. Guess I was wrong.
Finally using my brain, I sketched this out over the weekend to be prepared for the sessions to begin during the week. Smart cookie.
I was so excited to paint that I thought about it before I fell asleep, each time I woke during the night (which was alot) and it was the first thing when I got up to start my day. It's great to have that motivation going.
The plan of attack was running in my head. Where was I going to start? How would I treat the areas that seemed to flow together? Which colors was I mixing to give the work the feeling I was after?
Plenty of questions, and I hope I have some good answers.
While my granddaughter napped, I ran to the studio and put down some color. I thought I might try to keep a light hand on this one. I'm not sure where it's going to go, but it's a beginning.
