The third of six

My posting of the six additional paintings continues this morning with this piece, Hollyhocks. I was delighted with the light in this one and the way the day lilies and the hollyhocks were painted.

Garden scenes aren't new things for me to paint, but this combo of buildings, road, shadows, and flowers was. I had fun dotting in the darks on the left, and making it feel balanced. 

Again, too, there was a lot to be learned about white and its temperature. After doing a lot of paintings in this series, by the time I got to this one, I was feeling more confident. What fun painting is when you've been diligent. 

If you're not already a fan, click over to Gallery9 and Custom Art Framing's Facebook Page. At work today we'll be doing another in a series of giveaways featuring trivia about the shop. Fun stuff! 

Thanks for reading!
