After completing a little Rose painting for the Daily Paintworks Challenge, I went over to the Atkinson Country Club to see Liz Peck's paintings in a show where they paired artwork with flower arranging. The show was excellent and especially the flower arrangements in that they were wonderfully related to the work.
I did some more studies for the door itself, remeasured, and have bit the bullet, I'll rework the open door starting today with a redraw and mass in. I'm fairly convinced that it will be worth it. After all is said and done, I can say that I did my best. I should name it the never-ending landscape.
I did want to do a quick painting and took something off the challenge pages of Daily Paintworks. I chose the rose bush challenge. I've painted roses before and I always have a very hard time with them. I guess I'll have to paint a lot more of them before I feel good about doing them. The best thing about painting flowers is using wonderfully vibrant colors. In this case, it was the grays that made it look bright and colorful.
