More Bumps lead to a Small Fry!!


My adventures with bumps continues!!

Two In The Sunshine - 3.25 x 3.25 - watercolour

After finishing my last little miniature, I have been fired up to try again.  My Christmas commissions were finished so back I went.

The first layers of paint look terrible! Bumpy, flat and uninviting.  Was this really how the colours worked.  It has been over a week so I wasn't sure.  I pressed on.

Glazed with my colours.  The richness started to emerge.  I glazed some more.

"Supper time", my husband said.
"Hold on."I responded.
"Things are getting cold."
"Okay, just a minute."

It was so hard to stop, things were working!  New ideas were flying!  Try a little more blue. Hit it with some yellow. The purple needs more red.  Blue green here.  Don't forget the sun glow on the leaves.
Suddenly I was done!

Black-eyed Susies, one of my favourite flowers, lots of yellows and reds, glowing in the sunshine.  They come late in the summer to help keep that summer glow alive.

Steve should know that you can't interrupt something that's developing into a mini masterpiece!

So true! We did have dinner and it wasn't too cold and I finished the picture later in the evening. But it is so hard to stop when I am in 'the middle of something'.

Thanks Linda, the two pictures, this post and the last one really sparkle in my studio today with the sunlight. Nice to see sun, we have so many gray days. Not that I am complaining, no snow and ice is nice!!
