Continuing to bring out zinnias from backgrounds started a day ago.
Some have possibilities and some ( that I really liked ) will get tossed.
Like this one.
This has promise
Red Zinnias is pretty good.
Problem is ,when I take months off, I need to burn the first few ( warm ups) just to get the flow going.
Back to the studio.
I have been drawing zinnias for a week.
Studio today, Painting starts.
I am painting over old started paintings. ( I am frugal and dont waste watercolor paper)
Back of old painting
Made a new background
Let dry overnight, find the zinnias in the mixed colors and draw them.
Drawings.on watercolor paper
It's been months since I was in studio.
Starting August Heleniums over an old painting started last winter
.First part. Start with wet areas and black buttons.
#2 Add color
Let dry overnight.
Aug 7 next day.
Finished August Heleniums and found some "starts" in a pile left from last winter.
They might be paintings and maybe not.
Its fun to try to find the picture on these pages.
Computer problems but I am back on track.
Its late summer and the artsy fartsy is welling up inside me.
Once again I am entranced with Heleniums.
Drawings started Aug 5 2019
Parts of first drawing might be a small painting.
Continuing with y daily studio time.
I spend an hour in the studio working, sometimes it's a hit sometimes a miss.
Yesterday I left 4 small painting starts of Poppies.
This morning I worked on three and one went up in flames the other two look pretty good
