Spring Scentsation is coming along.
I have finally ventured into new colour territory. Bring on the Greens
I love how some paintings are a constant joy as your work develops.
I have loved every floret on this work. Interesting enough I am also loving the freedom of painting the background. Well, after I paint the edges around the florets!
But with this much detail and painting with small brushes for most of this I have not grown tired. Each new phase is engaging for me. Usually when a painting is about 2/3 through I retire it until I get the next painting to this phase. Then I retire the new one for a bit. Then go back to the first. Been a constant pattern for me.
Funny, when I started this I was so sure I would use large brushes and paint loosely. Started it. Went back in to refine the details. And was completely hooked on my small brushes once again. Painting detail is who I am. Exploring is one thing as long as you are true to who your are I guess.
