Lately I have been reworking paintings that just never quite felt right to me. It's a great feeling to be able to paint over something and give it a new life....and you learn so much along the way. Once again, I have reworked this painting from an older post. The finish is reworked in palette knife.
|Decided to add the watermelon because I loved the color and it pointed to the flowers.|
|Background felt cold so changed the color of both background and table. I still felt that everything was too tight, too perfect so......|

I'm often asked about my process. Below is a painting in Progress. One more session and I'll be finished.
|This is where I start. I actually watched a utube video on how to arrange fresh flowers.|
|I paint in oil but I start by toning my canvas with acrylic paint.|
|Once the drawing is down, I begin from the middle and paint outward.|
|When working with a neutral background in my set up I'm never sure what the end color will be.|
|I was eating Watermelon on my break and thought the color and shape would be perfect in the design. |
I'm alway playing with the design and moving things around.

This month the Mavens decided to really challenge themselves by creating their work with a tool or medium they normally do not use. The results were fascinating. What an adventurous group!
