I cannot believe how insanely busy I have been the last couple of months! But by the end of this week, I believe things will come back to a "normal" schedule in my life. The problem is that the important things which have kept me very busy with are not painting projects, so I haven't gotten too far with my latest 2 paintings (this is the second of the 2 I started). But I have promised myself that by my post on Thursday, there will be progress made!
I decided to do this plant in watercolor as well as in oil. It is a very interesting process to be working on both of them at the same time, and to experience the differences -in the way they look, in their textures, colors and so on. I like each one for different reasons. Each has a different feel, but the light still appears to bounce around and illuminate the Agave plant's leaves. This 11" x 15" watercolor painting at its beginning stages -just like the oil painting in my last post. It has only the first wash laid down on the paper (140 lb. Arches).
Saturday I went to "my" art store and picked up the last 6 canvasses of my October order. Six big beautiful 30" x 30" canvasses. I now have more than enough canvas to work through my ideas for this year, starting the last week of January, for sure... I think! :-)
Have a great week.
