HYDRANGEAS 3



Listening to 
The Lone Bellow 
and painting hydrangeas, 
getting lost in the music and the colors...
and saving the best for last...the center lightfilled yellow-green-violet petals.

Enjoy, and have a great week.

Dear Rhonda- these hydrangeas are looking gorgeous. I love seeing the stages and the development of your paintings. Also read your informative post about fugitive colors. I am so glad you passed this information along. Hugs!

Oh to get lost in music and color! The joy in that is coming through in what is proving to be a stunningly beautiful painting, Rhonda! Well done!!

A beautiful painting in the making, and lovely that you're so obviously loving doing it!

RH Carpenter said...

Thanks so much, Sadami, Debbie (glad you got some info about the fugitive colors - unsure why such high-end artists still use bad pigments), Sherry, EM and Cathy!!! I appreciate your comments as this one comes along...

The delicate washes on the flower petals are superb Rhona!

RH Carpenter said...

Thanks, Caroline :) I have to get back to it now, after a short break for something else :)

Hi Rhonda,
It's looking great, but you know that. :))
Can't wait to see the finished painting.
Sincerely,
Gary.

Thanks, Gary. I am enjoying this one but it's moving along slowly - other things taking me away from it.
