starting a new painting


I thought it might be fun to show you how I start a painting. I usually start with a photo or a still life set up. This time I am using a plate of chiles. My first drawings here are not very exciting. The chiles are too centered even when I draw them bigger to create better shapes.

Hi Mom- So cool that you have this, although this shows nothing of what you can really do! I like the oranges, but put some of your people portraits on here - those are your forte..Although you really can do anything with ease.

Also, for those visiting this blog: My mom is truly an artistic genius & I have yet to meet anyone that is better! Biased? No. Her talent is God given, because I don't have it!
