Some beautiful Calla Lilies were growing in my friends yard and were so lovely. I started snapping photos. This is my first layer of paint on my first lily painting. Will work on it some more soon. I've been painting a lot more with a few shows coming up. Why is it that deadlines make us work harder. I want to work smarter and steady instead.
I decided to show my process for the painting I am doing for the painting the master's challenge, Michealangelo's "Delphic Sybil".
She was outlined in burnt umber and shaded too.
And then I started in on the background. Stage three is below this post and I will post more later in the week on this piece.
