Last week, I painted this lovely arrangement made by Jessie. Flowers are so much fun to paint: they’re super forgiving, which allows for lots of experimentation.
My favorite part of this arrangement is the unexpected bits: the foliage and myriad little textural elements that add so much interest.
Right now I’m enjoying mixing media a lot. In this piece, I use watercolor, colored inks, gouache, and graphite pencil. I also spray, smudge, dab and smear around a good bit.
Hoping this brings you cheer at the start of the week. I know painting it last week left me feeling happy. In a year when the holidays might be a tougher on many of us than other years, here’s wishing you a safe and happy holiday season.
