Before these beauties become a thing of the past until next winter…………thought I’d give them the once over. Spent rather longer than had hoped but I hope have retained the immediacy I was after. I was pretty pleased with the end result anyway. The weather is a bit too nice for soup so they have been used for stock and chicken food! The chickens love it when I paint vegetables.
Last of the hangers-on, just caught him hiding in the flower bed behind some thuggish cornflowers. Definitely a worthy death. Had some girlies over for supper the other night and so had been folding napkins……………..I love the shadows on linen and the light coming in from the window caught the front folds. Can I use tulips in supper? Probably not, though if you have a recipe………………answers on a postcard please.
So you would be right in guessing that the daffodils are over here but whilst I experience a few technical hiccups as a virgin blogger………………….. in the words of Valerie Singleton, ‘’here’s one I made earlier’. The idea behind this was to try and capture the light falling on the front bloom and the a little on the front of the back blooms. I really enjoyed painting these although am going to have to find another pigment as cadmium yellows seem always prove to be quite oily and translucent – I chase it around the canvas a lot!
The first of many blogs! Since today was my first day of producing a small daily painting, I thought I’d start at the beginning of the alphabet…………………..a for asparagus! I don’t think I’ll follow this order though, besides I don’t have any bananas in the house. The asparagus was fun to paint, the brown paper bag more of a challenge but hey…………..that’s dinner sorted!!
