After starting “In the Garden” several weeks ago, I finally got back to it yesterday and finished it up. Here are some shots of its progress….
As I always tell my workshop students, background is everything! Of course, once you have a background you love, it can be hard to cover up!
Once I started adding the woman, I got a better sense of the direction I wanted to go with this piece. I also made some significant changes to her hair!
Here are some close ups of the finished work…
The tulipy sort of flowers were inspired by a wallpaper border. Does anyone know what kind of flower they are?
Looking back at the first photo….can you see who is lurking among the flowers?
This is a 24 x 30 inch deep canvas (1 1/2 inch). Cost is $225.
