SOLD (12x12in on 1in deep repurposed canvas)
I bought these lilies a couple days ago at the grocery store and waited till the began to open up. Today was the day. They burst open so brilliantly, but I love painting the closed pods too. Although, as I’ve said before, my favorite part to paint in a bouquet like this is the negative space. Look at all those fun shapes – and I just take a giant brush, load it up with paint, and slop it on to create those blurry lines and yummy color blends.
I painted this so fast today I almost want to call it a ‘sketch’ and really study it again tomorrow, but other tasks might take over tomorrow’s precious nap time.
On another note: I got an update from the city and I can begin painting my mural next week! Locals > watch out for the walls around the garbage pickup area in the lot on Remington to turn bright orange! That’s my cue.
