Oil on 6x6 inches stretch canvas
This painting gave me fits. I struggled to be happy with the form and coloring. I finally went to Bob Burridge's color wheel and settled on purple (dominant), orange (spice color), blue (spice color) and yellow-green (focal point) along with white and black. Happy? Well, let's say happier.
Here's where it was before:
I initially drew the flower with acrylic ink.
Then I applied a thin layer of oils. Boring! Using the color wheel allowed for a dramatic change. Frustrating but fun.

"Bejeweled With Ice"
Watercolor/Gouache on Aquabord 6x6 inches
We recently has a storm go through consisting of rain, ice and a little snow. The snow has quickly disappeared but the ice remained. I think the trees loved it. They were showing off their sparkling jewels all day with the help of the sun. So lovely.
