Today’s painting takes us on a trip to Italy, probably one of my favorite places. Such rich warm colors that you can feel the sun on the stone building. I love using those colors in my palette too – burnt sienna, quinacridone gold, raw umber – pulling together to give that deep warmth.
And how cute is that laundry hanging from the windows! We don’t see that too much here in the States but in Europe not many people use dryers so it is very common for the laundry to be hung outside.
Well, we’re coming upon the end of the first week of the challenge and I have to admit the painting has not been as much of the challenge for me as the rest of the process. After the painting comes the scanning, resizing, saving, posting to the blog, posting to facebook, yada, yada, yada! Oh my! I will just have to try to be more organized.
Thank you all who have been sending me photos of your doorways too. I love it, you guys are amazing! So keep checking here to see how your photos have been transformed into paintings.
