I would like to start today by saying thank you to all the people who welcomed me back. The warmth of well wishes truly surprised me.
Today’s piece I began in early November. The thinking was to give it to a much loved family member for Christmas.
I spent 3 or 4 hours everyday on it for weeks and then had to revert to Plan B for the gift idea.
The painting is only 10″ x 8″ and I found it extremely challenging as the flowers are lit from behind. I knew very little in the techniques to capture this so the process was a learning curve.
The painting is now complete and I have to travel about 200 miles to deliver it.
Whilst photographing it for the blog, I decided to try the negative mode on the camera…
I have displayed them both so you can decide which you prefer!
Hope you have enjoyed today’s small offering.
