Still trying to capture roseness with only a few strokes. Just shapes. This painting was done over an old one which really helps with all the texture. I love the texture. I find it really enhances the feeling I want. So my bloom is better but that bud in front is awfully straight. I am not thinking nature is like that!
Spring is in the air and Wednesday class featured a couple of different vases of springtime, calla lilies and lilac.
I loved doing the callas with this soft palette .

This is the first apple I did in this last round of apple painting. It is perhaps my favorite, my freshest. I admire the various planes I found and the carefree edges. My goal after conferring with my instructor is to first get the shape correct. Then play with color or whatever challenge I have given myself for that day. It seems so basic and yet so easy for me to forget. And to stop buying round apples.......they look like pumpkins!
