STUDIO UPDATE: Painting Petunias!

Hi there Paint Party Friday friends and those that follow along with my Studio Updates each week.  Well, it's FRIDAY again! (9pm here mind you). What a week! I did get my paints out this week after a long drawing and study break, and oh my, it's so nice to be playing around with paint again, I did miss it. All my sketching and lessons have not been in vain though, I'm seeing the fruits of my labour.

Testing out different colour combinations for the Petunias.

I just was not happy with the vibrancy of my mixes 
so I invested in these single pigment paints and they are brilliant.

 Playing with paint! The practices are coming along nicely.

  7. Beautiful petunias - love to see your process of choosing color. I find working on ATC size I have to do that or I have a bit more texture than I bargained for!

  8. You make it look so easy to get depth in the flowers, but I know it's not easy. The petunias are really beautiful.
