I think that I am finally finished this painting. Like a lot of artists I know the temptation to tinker with it is often still there unless it is under glass, varnished and/or out of my possession! This is the painting I worked on while painting live at Whole Foods’ art event a couple of weeks ago. It is a smaller version of a previous painting and the inspiration behind both were the roses in my garden. This is very mixed media! In the process I used watercolour, acrylic ink, spray paint, Derwent Inktense pencils, Neocolor II water-soluble wax pastels, soft pastels and Shiva Oil Stix. It was a lot of fun with the majority of it painted outside in my garden enjoying summer!
