Inspired

Hola! Hope all is well=0)
I've been a little out of it the last few days and I haven't painted. I really need to work on a few projects before I upset anyone. I usually see something that inspires me. Usually, it can be anything! Lately........nothing seemed just right. I was going through blogs and found some lovely photos of hydrangeas. They are so gorgeous and I love to see huge bushes of them. So, just had to paint tonight!


I start with a very simple sketch.




Then I do a color test and also see how my strokes look.





Finally......The ALMOST finished project. I still need to let it dry over night and then make the very small details.



Hoping you all have a lovely week,
XOXO,

Carol



My other job.................

Me-Why?
X-We need to make that robot!
Me-I don't know how to make a robot, sorry.
X-I can do it!!! SCREWS PLEASE!
