YELLOW LILIES - PART 3


More done on the lilies – still need more darks and haven’t decided how I will handle that because – duh – no value study. So, to the drawing board to figure this out now – better late than never!

That red and green combo is just gorgeous! Love how this is coming along. No value study??? Don't tell that to your students! ha ha

It looks better on the small screen!

Gorgeous! I love the fresh greens and the red is perfect. Thanks for posting the whole process--I love your results and hope to give the technique a try soon.
Congrats on your show too--looks like a great turnout!

laura said...

Deb, at what point will you remove the miskit you applied in step one?

debwardart said...

Laura - Oops - thanks for catching my faux pas! I removed the miskit after I poured and before I put the tracing paper over to "find" the lilies. I should have put that info in Part 1 of this demo. The show went pretty well, I thought, even though I haven't sold anything (yet???!!!!)

Wonderful flow to this one, Deb. Of course I'm curious to see how you work the darks in this one.

Gary Keimig said...

really nice Deb. Love the reds with the yellow and greens.
Looks as though you had a great turn out for the show you posted. I hope you sell them all.
Thanks for the post on my art blog. I had to laugh at the idea of construction as that very day my wife and pardner told me I was only to supervise when we finish the deck roof this summer sometime. We at least got through the gallery work with no mishaps and even had a great sale yesterday. In this economy it is scarey but it is true that God looks after fools.
God bless and have a great weekend.

Deb, this is looking very good. I am not worried...I know that you will put those darks just at the perfect places:-)
Good luck with the show!

Teresa said...

If you said it's finished I wouldn't doubt for a second that this looks was your intention Deb, to me right now it's 98% done, just a couple of dark hotspots here and there and it's perfection!

Ann, have done a value study, not had time to get back to it yet, tho.
Thanks Gary - I hope I sell them all too - except then I would be hospitalized with a heart attack!! Supervising the construction is a good idea! Hope you have many more sales!
Christiane - thanks! Stay tuned!
Gosh, Teresa, you are waaaay too kind - I think it needs lots more work!!!!
