Orchid


This little painting was done as an exercise with some of my friends on Painting Friends to work with lost and found edges. This was my first attempt, and after posting I can see many places where edges could have been soften or lost. In my second attempt, things went much better. I usually paint tighter than this so this loosenss was a lot of fun.


My new computer won't let me resize in Photoshop (that means I don't know how to do it and won't be able to achieve this little task until my son comes to town in a few weeks and sets it up for me). So, when I can upload my second painting, you'll see a vast difference. Lost and found edges make paintings so much more interesting and I'm going to try to incorporate more in future work...just depends on the subject I'm working with because I don't see it working with glass or crystal. Just one more little project for me to add to my "to do" list.
