Work in progress – very slow progress

20 Jun

This painting I see to have started forever ago.  About a quarter of the way through, a friend saw it and asked me to do a smaller version for her – the catch was – the smaller painting had to be completed first as she was leaving town.  And so, I painted “Lavender Lilacs” for my friend, a similar version – then came back to this one.  This painting is a full sheet watercolour with tons of details.  I am for the most part, drawing as I go.  Initially I scetched out the boundarys of the bloom and then started wortking towards the centre.

A few times as I was lost in the painting – I thought I actually could smell the blossoms.  I guess I have a vivid imagination.

Visit again- more to follow soon……
