I’m really enjoying this small painting of the orchids. I love the colours – purples and greens – as it really feels like spring! I’ve been working on the flowers on the left – deepening the colours and enhancing the contrast. You can see the difference from the flowers on the right that only have the first layer of paint,
The mild temperatures have been great in southern Ontario this week and I’ve take the opportunity to spend time outside with the cat. He’s still really a kitten (under a year old) so I’ve been taking him out with a harness and lead. He’s not too bad with it although he tends to get tangled up every now and then. He’s just itching to go out and explore though so I know I’m going to have to let him out on his own soon. This is tough for me since I lost two cats last fall to a predator in the area. As much as I don’t want to go through that again it’s obvious he enjoys the outdoors and wants to get out and about. And when he’s inside, he’s destroying the house….so far this week he’s shredded the curtains, broken a lamp and been climbing the plants. Sigh.
I’m really enjoy painting in the morning and it is my most productive time. I think I’ll set the alarm even earlier for tomorrow so I can get more done!
