a new painting...

I started a new painting. The idea was Tuscan colors and some favorite things. I couldn't scan it because the canvas is 18 x 24, so it won't be a scanner painting.
First I sketched whatever came to mind...

Then I painted in some color, sort of haphazardly...
...then i blotted out some color...

..starting to paint in the white to "pop" the images...the"rainbow" definitely didn't work for me....

more layers of color, a bit more Tuscan...

...more depth added....
...so this this the basic background for the painting. Tomorrow i will begin the drastic altering of and over the images...got to get rid of the "cuteness"... At the moment I am uninspired, it is not calling to me...so we'll see what it ends up as. ...i'm pretty sure I need eyeballs somewhere.... maybe the leaves...

PLEASE leave me your EMAIL ADDRESS ...otherwise I can't thank you for visiting my blog!

This is yummy! I LOVE the tuscan colors. This is a terrific background; I like it as is really. Can't wait to see the end result! Wonderful!

I love these colors. And, you know I love your birds. Have you considered one big eye in the background rather than lots of little eyes? As always, my unsolicited advice is worth what you paid for it.
