|A Touch of Paradise|
Unframed size 56cm x76cm
I started with a small work adding to my Etude series, capturing the face of a Giraffe from our day at the Dubbo Open Plains Zoo. This helped me get my brushes moving by keeping the subject simple.I followed with a little doggie portait which was a thank you gift.
A medium work next painting a Kangaroo who had dashed across the road in front of our car.
Up next - using a full sheet of Saunders Waterford 425gsm paper and no pressure (hah hah just $15 a sheet) I painted a Bird of Paradise using some of the bright colours on my travel palette , colours I had taken to do the Fabio Cembranelli workshop end of last month. I painted the single stem flower first and left it over night. When I looked at it the next morning I decided if I leave the white of the paper it will look a bit like a botanical study so I took the whole of the second day and my imagination to fill in the entire sheet with an abstract background.What next - I am just finishing a first in a new little series and will share this next time.
