Day 1696 Done!!

Summer Snow 15×22″Cp Fluid 140#

In more ways than one. First day back at the Y so I am done in and the painting is done too. I think.

I splattered the white areas a little more. I am loving splattering now that I figured out how Charles did it.

Remember!!!! Tap the brush not the Ferrell.

Will let it simmer overnite and then decide. In the meantime I large bath tub with magnesium salts pour moi!!

Can you find the light spots in the picture?!! Bytw DONT use blue tape on your painting to mask areas to be lifted. It peeled paint and paper off when I lifted the white rim of the cup with the magic eraser.

My dollar general two inch tape has NEVER Done th

Charles Reid palette

Margaret looking forward to that bath. Xoxoxox

Day 1695 Summer Snow WIP?!!

Summer Snow – Fluid 140# cp paper 15×22″

Sorry for the late post. Been working on this when I wasn’t busy walking 🚶‍♀️ 🚶 🤗!! My feet are tired.

What I started off drawing.

I drew it with a 2 B Derwent sketching pencil. Very soft. Before I started painting I erased it to lighten the pencil marks.

Here we go. Decided the background was too light.

Kind of wish I had left it.

But I thought the background was too close in tone to the flowers. No idea why I thought that but I did. So I darkened it. Hmmm. Well those flowers really show now. And they look cut out. Not a good thing in a paintjng. Oopsey.

Lots left to paint on this half sheet.

Heading toward THE END! I was getting tired and probably should have stopped.

But I kept on. Now you might notice the flowers don’t look so cut out now. That’s because my friend Mike suggested I use a Mr Clean eraser on the flower edges to soften them. THANKS Ms. Mike!! That helped.

Now the question of the hour is more splatter or not on the flowers especially the ones on the right side. I think I will sleep on it. Have to work fast because those crepe myrtles don’t last long.

Charles Reid Holbein colors plus quin gold.
