This is another painting that was started a long time ago. The background was done but nothing else. In person, the blue is much prettier. It is a clear, cool blue, but this is how my camera saw it. I'm not into painting flowers as much as I used to be, but it feels good to finish another unfinished project.
Hot press paper isn't usually my favorite surface on which to paint but this wasn't too bad. The paint tends to sit on the surface of the paper rather than settling in so it is really easy to lift but harder to build up glazes without lifting what you don't want lifted. You can see the unevenness in the background. It is hard to get a smooth wash on this surface too, but in person, you can see the granulation of the pigment rather than splotchiness, which is actually very interesting.
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.
