Cone flower background

The background was painted wet in wet with different shades of green and pink and the colors were blended. I like the effect of the directional strokes, so I am going to retain that look. Next, I'll be painting the bee and the seedhead. Please come back and check it out.

Plein Air painting

Fall harvest~6"x6"~Acrylic on canvas

After a really long time, on Sunday, I attended a plein air painting session at the Perricone Garden Center in Volo, IL. They have created a variety of fall garden vignettes to inspire the artists. I chose to paint this grouping of pumpkin, kale and corn.
