Progress continues on the painting I am doing for Hope City Orlando. The leaves, vines and tendrils are blocked in. I'm really liking the mix of warm and cool greens and wanted to achieve a light struck quality on some of the leaves. The next step will be to paint the flowers and the background, the shape that symbolizes a home which is a background for the doves, and last but not least the doves themselves.
I hope my readers are enjoying the work in progress posts! It's a great way for me to analyze the painting on the monitor. Many artists do the same by also looking at one's work in the mirror. I don't know how it works, I guess seeing your work from a different perspective, but areas that need modifying become glaringly more obvious. I always enjoy seeing work in progress from fellow artists and the thought process and methodology behind a painting. It fascinates me. What do you think?
