Hooray! Painting complete! I feel like this painting’s been kicking around forever!
Here is the progression:
Wow. It was kind of difficult to know when to stop painting. I had in my head to add a bunch of native plants to BI such as bayberry, Rosa Rugosa, ivy, golden rod and wild Astor. It’s what I love about the island. You can actually see what would grow in our region if we didn’t have all of the development.
Well, this gouache painting got me back in the saddle. I think I’ve loosened up after not painting for some time. Next I am going to switch to acrylics and canvas…let’s see what comes out!
