I have been picturing this painting for a long time, and Finally got around to it. It is based from a photo I took on a trip to Manitoulin Island last summer. It has been a long time since I have done a Diptych, and since I have finished a piece using my palette knife exclusively - but I am happy with the result!
Something a little different for me. For this piece, I was just experimenting, with no plan in mind. Here's to happy accidents!
"Downy" started out as one of those 'just for fun' pieces, and turned into a project that I worked on time after time over a period of several months.
Considering that I don't work with watercolour nearly as often as oil, I am pleased with the final product - and have received some good feedback on it, too.
This is my most recent painting, titled, "The Calm". It's something a little different for me, but I really enjoyed working on it. I love portraits, and my husband has been coaching me to work more intuitively. This is the result!
