First painting session

Today was a productive day…well painting wise it was! As you can see, I have done much in regards to blocking in the canvas. Every bit of white canvas is now hidden with paint!

I decided to tackle the lily pads and water simultaneously as it was easier to define the lily pad edges when I had the water to counterbalance. Colours and shapes still need tweaking but I think I’m off to a good start.

I even decided to block in the water lily. Mostly because titanium white takes a while to dry and it’s much easier to paint a nice bright white when there is a base layer already applied. Below is a closer view of  the painting.

I think I will let the painting dry a little…maybe for a couple of days because as it stands right now everything is pretty slick and any additional applications result in paint being smudged around. A look that I do not want!

In the interim, I may even start another! I have two pieces that I plan on entering into a couple of summer exhibitions. I might sneak in a blog post or two of those…
