This week I haven't had much on my workbench as I have been working
on a new canvas. Since last week I have been filling the foreground with a carpet of wildflowers.
Last week it looked like this, the house is, as you can see from the top photograph gone.!
I couldn't get it to work and in the end gave it a wash of gesso to get rid of it. I think I need a break from the painting to see what I need to add to the distance. It needs something but I am not sure what.
I have been using flakes of this lovely copper leaf to add little pieces of shimmer.
It looks beautiful in the sunlight.
I have been quickly sketching wild flowers to help with my canvas foreground.
the flowers I collage are fairly abstract but I like to look at how they are formed and use my sketchbook to work out ideas for my collage paintings.
Hope the sun is shining in your world.
