Stained Glass

Today I painted with the Lakefield Creative Arts Guild and discussed the upcoming plans to hold an art show and tea in June. There are many things yet to be worked out including the date which I will post as soon as I know.

I decided that I wanted to do more work on this abstract I had started a while ago (see posts on 13 April 10, 15 April 10 and 18 January 11) and get it completed.

I added a thin line of blue to the left side of the white area and decided that the white bar needed to be toned down slightly. I used a wash of pale blue and then added a hint of alizarin crimson.

Then I added a few more bars, dots and small shapes to the painting in burnt sienna and in various dark mixtures to complete the painting.

Stained Glass is an original 11" x 15” watercolour and will be available when framed for $395.00.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog and look at the artwork.
