I went to "Open Studio" today at Kat Sowa's. This was an opportunity (after the workshop) to revisit some of the still lifes that are still set up and available to paint. I suffered today, because I wanted to get the color of that dominate rose really right....but, alas! I did not achieve it. It felt like a battle to this stage, and it's no where near finished. I'll look at it tomorrow with a fresh eye.
My paint order finally arrived, so I was able to prepare my palette the way it was supposed to be. This is a ton of paint! (The palette is 18x24).
Here is my art friend Mark Larsen. It was fun to see him again today.
And this is Mark Larsen's dog, Bessie. She goes everywhere with Mark, so she is sure to live a more interesting life than your average little furry companion).
