Last night was a busy studio night. I set to work on the pink lillies I'd blogged earlier as a paintlet.
This canvas is 45 x 60 cm so there is plenty of room to get some nice sweeping brush strokes going. If I can avoid it, I prefer not to draw on the canvas first, and develop the subject straight on the surface. You get a much more organic feel to the paint, and its a good way to build up the colours.

All the more fun when you stick some loud music on. This was painted to some vintage David Bowie, and it was great for loosening up after painting in miniature.
