My friend Susie suggested that I might want to post a painting in stages so ya’ll could see the process as it develops. What a great idea! but I often don’t remember to snap the photo. But in this case I have.
Here’s where the Yucca Bloom painting stands now.
These are the photos I’ve taken on which the painting is loosely based. I like the closeup but not how washed out the sun on the blossoms made them.
Scroll down to see the painting as it has developed thus far. It’s a lot of fun to tease out the images by creating either hard lines by damping one side of a stroke of paint, or soft lines by painting wet in wet to form the bell shape of the blossom. Fun to create magic by making something 2D look 3D. I love it!
Thanks for stopping by! I’d love to hear from you if you liked this explanation or have any questions…
