Some whole nuts were left over from Christmas, so I decided to experiment with values in the different nuts. There is very little dark, lots of mid range and some light. The open walnuts had the best contrast.
There is something exhilarating about painting – the whole creative process, the learnings and the discoveries, and always – the challenges. I started painting in watercolour when the children were leaving home. A few years later, my artist mother suggested oils, and it has become a passion. I share my journey with this blog as I stretch myself with the exhuberant intention of painting daily.
