Windowseal Veggies from Kay Smith

Here is my painting started in our recent workshop with Kay Smith. It's half sheet (15x22), used just about every color I had on my palette, and was lots of fun to paint. I had a few "bumps in the road" with this one and had to draw it 3 different times...long story that I won't relate here. But, needless to say, I ran behind for the whole workshop and am just now getting this finished. I like this one very much with it's happy colors and subject, but I am going to deepen the cast shadows under the veggies to seat them better. It's funny how you see these little things once you post on a computer.

My next project will be to start the gorgeous floral Kay painted and I really do need to work on it before I forget what all I saw Kay do to achieve her success. She painted hers in less than 2 way that I'll be able to do that. But, I do need to at least start it! I'm telling myself that until I can give it at least 2 or 3 hours of painting time, I don't even want to start as that wet-in-wet technique is really trickey for me. Stay tuned!
