Saturday Studio Time

Saturday Studio Time

a new day a new palette, nothing more more satisfying then freshly squeezed paint

trying to recreate my palette started in France ... note to Self " make more detailed notes next time "

my new shelf from the fleamarket .. filled with my artworks in progress

ahh had fun making some backgrounds with leftover paint .. living the square canvas format

put 2 drafting table easels up to work side by side .. love the angle and being able to work on several paintings simultaneously :)

my 2 spent the whole day cooking and delivering snacks and lunch to the studio.. feeling very lucky ..

fun day, hoping for a little more

illustration painting project

I am having fun working on a painting for an illustration project

preliminary sketches working out composition and starting an underpainting layer in van dyke brown

the light is lovely at this time of the year in my little garden studio

working on a slightly raised easel drafting board seems to suit me better than an upright table easel

playing around with finding a suitable sky color palette .. I love Golden Heavybody Acrylic paints but have recently been introduced to Spectrum Acrylics and am quite smitten

adding some underglaze layers with golden fluid acrylics in quinachrodine crimson

and a littke green gold underpainting for skintones

" Sometimes even angels need a little help to fly"

painting process so far :)

hopefully I will get some quiet time in the studio this weekend to work a little more in this painting .. its good to be back in my little garden nook after travelling for what seems like forever
