Work in Progress – Daisy Fresh

14 Mar
Currently I am working on a carpet rose – amazing colors – so exciting – so much detail and complexity.
Often when I am working on a complex highly detail painting, I will work on a second looser and more adventurous piece.   I have been experimenting with sort of batik on paper using a masking compound instead of wax.

    The process sounds intimidating… but the daisies are gorgeous! I like the looseness – they look like they're drifting on Spring air…

    This, too, looks very interesting.

    Lovely. What a great way to loosen up.I've just bought a pick-up eraser from Daniel Smith, works like a charm on masking fluid. $1.95 I think.But lovely, lovely painting.
