Here's my latest small painting - Water soluble oil on canvas - called "Waiting for Spring. I tried for soft, Easter-ish colors and a tranquil, welcoming feel. I am, after all, dreaming these flowers.
If you are interested in my process, here are a few photos:
I began by covering the canvas with a very wet wash of burnt sienna, then wiping off the areas where I wanted flowers.
Next I blocked in basic colors and added depth to the inside of the flowers.
I let all of that dry (abandoned it really) for several weeks. Since I am really hungry for spring now, I was anxious to lighten the look of the piece. I rubbed a wet layer of blue, lavender, and white into the background with my fingers and began re-coloring the flowers and leaves. Ahhh. That feels better.
