And winter, sigh, isn't far behind this gorgeous end of summer.
So I took photos from which to paint, prepared a canvas with a solid color I felt like resonating off of, did a preliminary drawing in one color of chalk (pink, this time), then grounded them to the canvas with acrylic paint of the same color.
Next I started creating the color scheme with more acrylic paint. And then this time, unlike in other paintings, instead of refining in acrylic, I moved on to oils.
The result has a less raw quality, more finished and even a little refined. Worth playing with, don't you think?
