Foxgloves are such cool flowers. I've never grown them but I admire them in other gardens. In my photo reference, I liked how the top flowers had a lot of yellow in them and the lower flowers were much cooler. I don't think this photo really shows that very well but the color change is there.
I used Fabriano Artistico paper for this painting and was disappointed in how the paper pilled when I tried to lift paint. It's definitely not the workhorse that I'm used to when using Arches paper. It does give a very soft, velvety looking finish though and it is easy to lift the paint so I guess I will use it again.
I work in just about every art medium I can get my hands on with my favorites being watercolor and silk painting. I love to experiment with different mediums and styles of painting. I try to paint every day and will post my paintings here as I finish them. I really appreciate any comments you may have on the paintings.
