GoldWIP


Second installment of this study trying to get some golds I like. The reflections seem to be the trick with what is bothering me...possibly the contrasts with nothing explaining the reflections, so I laid in (or started on them) a few of the flowers and leaves. Still am not happy with what is going on, but will have to table painting until Monday. My daughter and granddaughter and a friend with her little girl are coming for the weekend...looks like Grammy will be playing with the little ones outside as our weather has been glorious. Both kids are city kids and they love to come to the country. Wish my mother hen who is setting on 8 brown eggs would hatch some peeps while they were here...that would bne too much fun!

  2. The top of the bottle is really beautiful as are the flowers. I see nothing wrong with this painting, on the contrary:-)

  3. Oh, this is beautiful. Luscious comes to mind in describing the colors and overall painting itself.

  5. The gold looks very real Mollie! I found the trick on painting gold not that long ago: the crisp reflections and tons of different colors with the veil of Ochra & Cadmium Yellow.. works like a charm all the time :)
    Thank you,
    Irina
