I didn’t paint anything last weekend. I am still working on the ‘saffron’ portion of my series, painting orange objects. My love brought me some salmon roses. The buds bursting with rosey goodness, but try as I might, I could not paint them.
Meanwhile, the online class in form and color from The School of Visual Arts started. It was so fun. I got to listen to a lecture and was given a design assignment. Visual problems to be solved! Fun, Fun.
Today, I finally decided on a composition for one of my lovely roses.
It doesn’t read as orange in this rendering as it should. Perhaps I should add a yellow glaze. I am not 100% satisfied with the leaves or the bowl. I must press on. I will never finish the series with perfection in the way.
I also toned some boards today.
I look forward to posting my class assignments when I finish them…
