Jerry's photo of an American lotus, almost bloomed out and showing the large middle seedpod. I liked it and it was different...with some good whites and pale colors.
Sketched on a large sheet of newsprint to get the composition/values before starting on this one.
And Deb Ward saw it, so I'm going to use this for my batik painting in her weekend workshop Saturday and Sunday. Hope I get those values right (in batik, it's all about the values...and shapes...and colors...and....ha ha).
(Deb and Joyce came over this morning and we had a blog lesson. I hope Joyce learned enough to create her own blog when she gets time; and hope Deb learned a few things from me that were new to her, too.)
Now I hear those eggs calling me to come paint them - wish me luck and good eyes!
