So I made a video of this painting along with May 13, it’s actually in the middle of the video of May 13, This painting is 4 x 4 inches square, gouache over a hot pink acrylic underpainting, the dogwoods are blooming and my white dogwood is blooming but not my pink one, weird right? Either that or the pink one bloomed and I missed it.
I am always trying to improve my skills and that requires doing things that I am uncomfortable with like painting from life. I want to paint from life so, in order to do it, you have to just do it and keep doing it until you are happy with the results. I am unhappy with these results but I know that if I persevere then one day I will be happy with the result and that keeps me going.
Being an artist means continually learning and developing your craft. I have been at it for at least 4 years and a lot longer if you count the breaks in between. So I am going to embrace the journey and just enjoy the process. This is where I am at in my painting work/world. Check out the video to see my process and find out more about this painting. I will be uploading to youtube as soon as I finish the edits.
Thanks for checking out my art! This is May and btw, the number does NOT identify the day in May but rather the order painted in. Today is May 5. 2022 and this is the 14th painting in May Flowers collection.
