New Painting

Posted in Art Work

Some shameless self promotion today : )  I posted a new 11 x 14 inch painting yesterday.  I used some reference photos of daisies taken back in July.

I was cutting back the very last of the daisies a few weeks ago and thought i'd like to capture them in all their summer glory.

I decided on painting a faux denim background to bring a nice country summery feel to the painting.  I got so involved in painting the denim look that I forgot to take a few photos.  I started with a light blue background and then dragged a loose mixture of navy blue across the canvas.  I ended up with a bit of a plaid look which I liked. After it dried, I lightly sanded the whole surface with sandpaper to give it a distressed look.  I painted a spray of daisies and a bit of vines to finish the look.  Here it is:

  1. Daisies remind me of my wedding 🙂  I really like them with the denim background.  That blue-yellow-white color scheme is very appealing to me.
