30 x 30...canvas...(old ZZ Top painting under this one...and an ancient aspen one too...:))
Yep...we do always have to have a beginning if there is going to be a wonderful conclusion! (notice how I didn't say ending...:)...conclusion sounds so much more friendly and happy!)
Nuthin under this 12 x25" but MDF panel and some gesso...sorry...:)
As I said yesterday I'm doing two at the same time...Don't know if the flowers I will do will be the same, but this absolutely FUN FANTASTIC way to begin is just too cool to only do once!! Also, it keeps me from over thinking what I am doing for this first few stages. The pics could be better...the colors didn't transfer correctly...but it's just a beginning...perhaps it will make the conclusion and a better pic look fantastical! :)
My goal in the beginning is to fill up the canvas or support with color and movement...BUT, remember a good bit of it MAY be covered up...so I don't fret the colors...mostly I just empty my palette using the colors I have on it...with a little squeezing out of colors I KNOW I'm gonna use later...that's for the unity within this seemingly chaos at this stage....
My choices for flowers AT THIS STAGE are poppies and sunflowers...I'm thinking right now that the big one will be poppies...and the other sunflowers...but that can always change!!
