…at least to what we are most comfortable and confident with. Today was a blast! I went “home” to my oils and totally relished in their squishy. glossy textures. Instead of painting larger canvases, I decided to shrink my perspective, or blow up details of things I normally do. And so, the lily series was born. Instead of the full landscape (which I did paint on one 12 by 12 canvas), I took snippets of the lilies and focused on them. They turned out well, and next I think I will do similar ones, just focusing on the lilies, but using different sizes and shapes of canvases so that they can be hung as a series of the same size or interesting combinations.
And for fun, here’s the pic of the mixed media I did…still not sure what is going to happen to the top half though
