This August I will be exhibiting my art at Flying Apron Bakery in Redmond. Stop by and grab a treat, their green juices are yummy, and their green monster pizza is simply delicious.
I put an emphasis on flowers for this show and this is my latest painting
I am fascinated by Crocosmias and admire their hardiness and beauty.
I was itching to paint in my favorite medium, so I got my watercolors out. The actual flowers I painted in gouache (opaque watercolor) to give it a punch, and when it wasn’t enough I shaded it with pencil.
I love the movement that this painting has and the good memories it keeps. My daughter sprawled on the sidewalk with me drawing one afternoon, too bad I don’t have a picture of that.
