After getting inspiration from Adriana Meiss' flowers, I thought I would get wild with a field of them. Flowers are coming along easier as I practice painting them. This is the 3rd one I have done if you don't count the little bitty ones on "the field of green" I did last. I used my light blue tint panpastel on the sky after I did my intial wet underpainting. I'm still unsure of them.
This is a great photo from the ref lib on wetcanvas. It's a 10.5x13.5, but not sure if I should crop it.

This is a painting from a photo my mom took on her trip to Europe...driving by on a bus. It had a wooden fence in the forground but it fought with the composition so i wipped it out. Mom took alot of photos, so I'll probably be painting some more of her trip.

Cherries in sunlight reminds of the summer......
I am on a roll with still life subjects...namely fruit :) and in bowls :)
This is an underpainting of Rembrandts and painting with water to allow for more layer of dry pastel later on. Messy looking isn't it?
