Unfinished......well, as you can see, it is. I am still painting this little baby. As it is progressing slowly, I thought I would show you how the process goes. I am usually shy to show my paintings like that to anyone but perhaps someone is going to find this interesting. I used a rich red as my first layer. Once that layer is dry, I can start the painting with very thin paint. I then keep on building the layers from thin to thick paint. This is called fat over lean. I have a long way to go in order to finish this painting but this is what I love, the process of doing it......

Zantedeschia aethiopica

Here is my painting for this week. I really like the strong effect of the white against the background. When I see those flowers in the garden, I know that beautiful spring is here.

Before nightfall

I thought I heard them say: "Come on! It is time to go to bed....close your petals and go to sleep".
Well, spring is upon us here down under. What a wonderful time of the year. Tulips are beautiful at the moment and amazing to paint.
