Painting Party

I met with my local art group today and we played with layered painting. I somehow forgot to take any photos while they were here. So all I have to show is my painting which is nowhere near finished.

 This is where I started with a fairly light painted background.

Here is what I finished today. There are two layers of leaves on here but I haven’t gone in and painted into the background. I need a lot of work to get darker values of red and to make the different layers of leaves show better.

Here’s a closer view. I love how the gesso under the paint shows through and gives texture to the painting. I have a lot more work to do on this one.

Thanks for stopping by. I'd love to hear your comments so please let me know what you think.
