72_365 : feeling wintery

Over the last week I have been painting snow – because snow seemed inviting when the temperatures were so high. Today the temperature dropped, the wind howled and the rain came down in sheets!
But I kept painting snow anyway…

66_365 : Admiring Georgia O’Keeffe

I love O’Keeffe’s work, particularly the way she handled watercolours. There are a few of her paintings I have semi-copied, over and over, trying to gain an understanding of how she achieved the light in her paintings.

Today’s painting is one I have done numerous times before today. Not an exact copy, but certainly closely based on her image. Trying to understand, trying to learn…
