Floral painting was the subject on Monday, the last of my course evenings this spring. The continuing course starts in early September - sign up here - and the next beginner's course in late October - sign up here.
We took a guided ride thru the beech woods of Frostavallen last weekend. My younger daughter fell in love with the Icelandic pony Kolstjarni, so I made this painting for her great day. Happy birthday, Sissa!
So the reason why I've had so little painting time the last year is this new studio that Maria and I have been building. But we just appointed it with some used furniture that we got from our friends, so it's ready to use! Thanks a lot, everybody who helped us build the house, especially Johnny whos forbearance with our technical ignorance has been priceless.
My minimizing experiments just led to a three-color palette comprizing Quinacridone gold, Perylene maroon, and Phtalo blue, later to be accompanied by a Fabriano sketchbook that I will ask a bookbinder to make for me. These eiders are my first attempt with this new kit.
