I'm still recovering from the Koi Joy marathon. ZZzzzzz
I fell out of my routine for a few days but this morning marks a new start in my daily paintings.
This morning with the Alfrescoes I painted a dappled shade area on the edge of Ross Bay Cemetery. I had the hardest time picking a spot as I didn't want any headstones in my painting. In the end I just omitted them from the scene all together. So there's some degree of improv here. I have a licence to do so.
Here's the start. There's still work to do. This is a studio painting based on sketches and photos of Beacon Hill Park sun flowers. It is all too dark for my liking. I like the general composition and the feeling of movement. But There are still changes I will make to that. I'm considering lightening the back ground.....Hmmm.
