Spring + Gold Paint






Hello! For the past few months I've been stuck in a cycle of starting a painting, not liking the painting, and scrapping the painting. Finally, I'm getting back into a productive groove. Thanks to gold paint... and tons of flowers.


Though I tried to keep a limited color palette of greens, gold and splashes of orange, the painting took on a life of it's own; as they usually do.

Here's another painting I'm working on:




She'll be looking at a butterfly or moth.
Like the painting before, there's a lot of gold in the background. 

I've been trying to create more texture in my work,


Ha! 
In the gif I'm trying to resist smoothing out all the paint. Will experiment with this.

And more flowers,


Thanks for looking!
