Mark's Magnolia + Another Shaker Village Painting Started
I finished the magnolia painting yesterday in class, putting in the dark darks behind the flower and softening some petals. What do you think? I like it, but...
I think I'm going to do another with the same colors in the flower and a green branch with a pale violet background. I don't know why I want to do it that way, I just do!
I also started another in the Shaker Village kitchen series - this is number 6 and the requirements were
1) Value and 2) Radial Design and 3) Indanthrone Blue.
This is the first step and I'm not sure where I'm going from here. In class it was suggested that I put golden delicious apples in the white area like wallpaper - that might work.
And, just because I had the time and why not...I put a bit more color on the little landscape (Violet Path) that is on a piece of tyvek that was coated with matte medium. Nothing much, just a little plaything.
