Today I began a painting. Outside it looks like this: gray and cold. My easel is therefore full of color! It snowed today. Two days ago I was in a t-shirt.
I love it when Buttercup naps next to my easel.
I washed the background in orange and used charcoal to draw on the painting. This painting is 19" x 32".
I love the beginnings...
This is how I left it for tonight. It's still snowing and since I have no hot cocoa, I'll settle for some apple cinnamon tea. I love this variety of tulip because it is pale on the outside, but the inside is bright red-orange. The angle of the tulips I'm painting show off that bright inside so well. I have had this photograph for a long time and am finally getting up the courage to tackle it. It should be a good one.
