Busy, busy, getting ready to leave home for two months and haven't done any painting for about a week. We'll be flying to Juneau tomorrow if the weather lets us, and flying to Orlando on Friday. I'm planning to paint and blog when we get settled in Cedar Key, maybe even before we're settled.
I can't seem to find a scan I'm sure I did of a little gouache painting last week before I cleaned up the studio, so found this that I did in 2006 of poppies and peas from my garden.
Still life with Yellow Chair watercolor and gouache 24 x 18
As with most of my still life paintings, I painted the flowers first from life, sometimes with no idea of what else would be in the painting. I finished it several months later, adding the gouache background last. Looking at this now, the green pitcher seems to be floating, not grounded.... I never noticed that before.
