Number Four



The 4th painting I created during Joannies stay, using Atelier acrylic interactives. I've photographed it best I can but am not used my Sons' editing programme on his laptop...It's close enough though! I primed the canvas with a mid pink tone and worked the painting with a large flat brush.

My spa break was wonderful and I am back feeling relaxed and looking very brown from my spray tan.

I have decided to call my Iris painting 'April Showers', Thanks for all your suggestions and compliments.

I love the pink undertones, Beautiful. Soft and calming colors.
I enjoy visiting your blog and seeing your wounderful art.
Many Blessings, Deborah

I am very fond of Atelier acrylics as well...am also using Golden Open. The style and feeling of this painting is VERY very nice. I love the color choices and the composition is so pleasing. Would you consider putting a few simple inferred figures on the road? Just a thought. I am trying to do more of that in my paintings now. Just to add an element of "story".
Thanks for sharing...I am struggling with acrylics all the time but determined to get better.

Thanks Deborah

Ginny, I haven't tried Golden opens yet but am loving the ateliers.
Re figures: In this piece I felt the single figure enhanced the baron, almost lonely feel, along with the choice to leave out trees, flowers, etc

This is very beautiful although it gives off a lonely feeling. Anita, is this a real scene from where you live? Or is it from your imagination? I, too, really like the pink undertones and that sky is gorgeous.
