DAY FIVE: Here's my current painting called BEACH. It's not done yet, but you can get the idea of what it will look like when completed.
This is the final painting in my series called VACATION!
I love watching the leaves of palm trees sway in the wind… it’s so soothing to me. And since I don’t live in a place that has these kinds of large palm trees, I completely associate them with being on vacation.
painting the sky...
DAY TWO: underpainting the sand a bright yellow
DAY THREE: painting the sand and the tree trunk
DAY FOUR: starting the palm branches and leaves (are those called fronds?)
DAY FIVE: Painting more palm branches...
and more palm branches... this is getting old!
...and even more palm branches!
Here I am at the end of the day. It's not done yet, but on its way!
Here are all four photos I used as inspiration for my paintings in the series called VACATION!
