In past months, I have been painting more regularly. Flowers, more often than not, tend to be my inspiration.
|Tulip and Snowdrop paintings (both on 140 lb. Arches paper)|
I like to paint small formats but occasionally will paint a larger painting like the 11½ x 15 inch painting below. Some people wouldn't consider this to be large, but it is for me!
|Wildflowers on 300 lb. Arches paper|
The painting below is smaller. The paper measures 7 3/4 x 5 3/4 inches. Just because the format is smaller, don't assume that I painted it quickly! I am a slowpoke painter. I work slowly and love detail. The Paris Flower Market painting took ages--both because there is so much detail in the flowers and the 300 lb. paper seemed to be eating my paint! I'm not certain that it is finished yet.
