Back to specific strokes ! I gave the canvas an orange priming, and the finished painting has a nice glow. I was focused on not overworking anything, getting the folds and the shadows. And no blending!
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.
