Palazzo Plants

Here we go...oops! Almost forgot to get a photo before I slapped on the paint (2 brownish toned stripes going to the edges of the canvas).

I got pretty involved and a lot of ground and effects put in before I stopped to sit back and take a good look at what was going on and what needed to be worked on.

One particularly lumpy area was bothering me so I decided to slash into it. The turquoise colour hanging down is the slashed piece of fabric, revealing a silky bluish material beneath.

This is the first final rendition. I'm pretty happy with it, although there's something still a bit undefined about the front door area.

Inspiration! Thinking about the painting before going to bed, I wonder"What if I painted those triangular shapes in front of the door as if they were potted shrubs?" Nah. Too risky. But next morning, I can't shake the idea so I give it a go. And I like the effect!

  3. You've got me eyeing up blank canvas now...

  4. Next thing you know you'll be meeting shady types wearing berets and paint-spattered black clothing in dark alleyways, begging them for just one more tube of unbleached titanium white.
