Starting Line-up


I had such fun with this painting, but the photographing of it, well, not so much.  Please forgive the glare. As I work from a very limited palette already, the glazing process was very simple.  I only used ultramarine blue and alizarin crimson.

I've been organizing my office/studio today.  The beautiful weather has me in the mood for Spring cleaning.  So, I had better get busy again!

I hope you're all having a great week!

You are so sweet, Azra. Thank you for your very kind and encouraging words. I appreciate them. And you!

Again, I apologize for the poor image quality. I could not get rid of the glare or the blue cast to it. Dark backgrounds are above my photographic skill level, lol.

This is really beautiful, Darla. it has a very ethereal feeling. gorgeous colors. I have never done glazing, but if this is the end result, it is a must! Have you taken a Dreama Tolle Perry workshop or have you always used transparent colors?

Darla McDowell said...

Thank you, Gloria. No, I haven't taken a workshop from Dreama yet, but I would love to! Her paintings are so beautiful. I have used transparent colors to glaze in the past, and I am currently experimenting with using a transparent underpainting.

Thank you again for your kind comments. :)
