Indian Corn - A Work in Progress

Today was going to be a very busy day for me. It started off with the still life class first thing in the morning at the Kawartha Artists' Gallery and Studio.

The theme for the class was "Harvest Time" featuring various fruits and vegetables with an autumn theme.

I decided to do the brightly coloured Indian corn with a couple of maple leaves to add some orange and red tones to the piece.

After drawing the image I started by putting a pale wash of raw sienna over all the corn husks. I darkened the mix slightly and started to add the next layer but ran out of time before getting very far.

I will post this painting at a later date once I have completed more work on the corn husks.

From there I was at the 12:30p.m. Information meeting for new members, where we had three people choosing to become KAGS members.

At 1:30p.m. I attended the meeting for KAGS's inclusion in next year's SPARK Photo Festival as one of our exhibitions.

After that meeting was over, I left KAGS to attend a 3:00p.m. meeting of the President's Council going over current business arising from emails received to the Gallery and discussion about the upcoming AGM next month.

Finally I was able to head home and bring in the horses and start the barn chores.

Thank you for taking the time to look at my artwork and I hope you will return often.
