Lovely Concetta! Would you tell us about that background please?
Concetta, this is beautiful and the background is so pretty.
I love the beautiful, rich color...
Concetta, this piece is so sophisticated.... possibly a weird word for art, but that's what came to mind along with stunning!
So, thank you all; this time I experimented with tinting the background in watercolour: translucent brown by Schminke, that I ADORE- just like caramel- and a little indigo at one side. Then I drew freehand and painted with patient little strokes the beautiful stripes of indigo and red. The lighter underside- or inside- of the pod is done in gouache.I like them floating in the air like this.
Concetta, thank you so much for the description of process! I always love knowing how other artists work.
Thanks Concetta! That must have taken you hours! Such patience you have.
Paula, Im sure you have as much patience...your paintings are so detailed and elegant.
Beautifully painted, Concetta. I feel as though I could pick them up.
We'd love to hear from you, your questions, comments, observations! Please feel free to comment, feedback is important to us.
