Poppies in a garden
November 8, 2011
Off tonight to do a presentation/demonstration to the Saddleback Art League in Mission Viejo, CA. For this presentation I’ve deconstructed a painting that will be a part of my Tapestri Collection, showing the process I go through to make one of these paintings in four stages. Using four different versions of a painting, I show the layering of content and composition, and how the transparent quality of the watercolors themselves build the intricacies and richness into completing a painting.
This little watercolor was completed yesterday, a small garden of Iceland Poppies and buds, cranberry red impatiens, coral bells, and lavendar star-shaped flowers. It will go up for auction tonight at the Saddleback Art League, after my demonstration.
In the meantime I’ve got reproductions of the four images you all chose last week going to print, look for them to be available soon. These limited edition prints will be printed on 12″ x 18″ paper, and will each cost $35.00 apiece. They’ll be available through my Etsy shop.
