WORK IN PROGRESS
This is the textured base painting - the pair having been painted together with the same colour scheme and some grid collage added in areas.
This is probably the third or fourth stage, as at one time I had a pair of the warm curtains, but removed the left hand one which appeared about two thirds across, and the small lemon round pot full of small flower shapes developed later . I was so engrossed I forgot to photo the earlier stages!!!
Latest stage, awaiting result of working on the second painting. Then I can view them together and see where I need to go.
I have been asked to create a pair of contemporary style 16 x 16 inch canvases for a bedroom based on creams, greens and lemons using floral images and any other additions I prefer. Its been great fun to have such freedom and I have glued gold ribbon down the left hand side of the window and textured grid on the lefthand side of the windows. The window boxes arrived when I was looking for somewhere to create some more of the inevitable darks in the painting. In other words the painting talks to me as I progress never knowing where it will end.
