Works in Progress 8.22.13 – Fun With Color

I’ve been working on some paintings using photos I took at a beautiful Portland rose garden. My first attempt wasn’t something I was ultimately happy with, but I learned a few things about color and composition that I think helped me with these two. Apparently not every painting can be a winner the first time around, go figure 🙂 I had SO much fun working on these and definitely tried some new color combinations. Here are a few photos of the process/progress:

Learning and growing…

    Holly, keep up the good work with your creativity and taking on new and different challenges with your art! I appreciate seeing your works in progress and your willingness to share them. Thank you, talented and clever girl. Love, Debbie. 🙂

    PS I also enjoyed seeing you and David walking ‘through’ your painting. Made me smile! 🙂
