An Ode to Spring

This painting is an expression, I guess, of wishing for Spring to arrive. Even though the calendar says it is spring - it isn't... We still have snow on the ground and cold temperatures.
It can't be far off, though!

This is also a representation of one of the things I'm doing to move in a little different direction. First, it is water color on paper - I think I am using 200# paper. I started out with water color and then added in acrylic to give more vibrance to the colors. It is also a larger format than my smaller studies. There are some things about working larger that I like, including the opportunity to give a little more attention to the details.

I'm still evaluating - thinking about new directions, and how to find that unusual viewpoint.
How to see and express in new ways.

I think you will find that working larger will help you explore new ways of expression is all areas that count...composition, values, color, and more.

I look forward to seeing your work.

I love how the petals and leaves pop out and yet seem very delicate. Very nice composition. This inspires me to want to paint tulips!

Would you mind if I added a link to your blog on my blogroll?
