Artists Statement

I paint as often and as much as I can. I take classes when I can afford it, but the money usually goes to buy more art supplies. This blog is to share the results with you! I am a Work in Progress.

White Peony challenge

This is the current challenge from Rookie Painter, an art blog. It was interesting to try a white flower again. This one has a lot of blue, but I'd like to try it again in a warmer pink/ivory version. I was using the Lukas large pan watercolors. They are economically priced so I keep them handy to the dining table for when inspiration hits and I'm not in the studio. It's a little difficult to get a dark green, but Paynes gray will make black if you keep washing it on.
