Pink Roses and Peach...


sold


Here's my latest palette knife floral painting. It's been a while since I've done one of these. I love these colors! It's filled with pink roses and hydrangeas in peaches and creams.
I always take shots of my paintings as I work on them.
It really helps me see how they're working. I can get a sense of
how the composition is working and can see if something need more or less
emphasis. I don't ever post these because they're just for my reference
but today I'm sharing them with you because it's one of the 30 day challenges
by Leslie Saeta.




I usually tone my canvas with a warm color first but sometimes I just can't wait to start!
In this photo you can almost see the pencil marks where I roughed in my drawing.
I don't get very detailed in that stage. I also like to work all around the painting
not concentrating on any certain area. This helps me with color harmony and balance.


Just filling in more color and a little unsure how it's going at this point. The flower in the upper
right just didn't want to emerge yet.




It almost finished in this one, just needs a few details and a signature!


and it's finished!



I want to invite you to my Facebook page, J Beaudet Studios if you haven't seen it yet. I've been posting my paintings there first, before anywhere else. I also haven't painted lilacs in a few years and there blooming now! I've done a few of lilacs and lemons. I love the combo of the purples and yellows. Have a great weekend!:)
