From the garden behind the Shakespeare's Head building in Providence. (In the cool comfort of my air-conditioned studio) I worked back into this watercolor on panel painting with oil, using sketches and photo references. 8"x8", oil, watercolor and pencil on aquaboard.
Still life with Brioches (on the left is the Alsatian version called a Kouglof).
I worked back into these paintings, begun in Paris. 8"x10", gouache on cradled panel, varnished. The two below (Lilac, Euphorb, Peonies-pink and red- and a fiery red/fuchsia fluffy something made up the bouquet) are available at Studio Hop.
Still life with green apples and Monet postcard.
Delacroix's Garden (sold) was painted from sketches E. and I did together on the spot and back at the apartment, with Irises added from the Tuileries. She may post her gouache version here. I am drawn to both the formal and the emotional aspects of figures in gardens and am anxious to explore it further (again with this idea, figures in the garden but also time). Drawing with E., to whom figures come so readily, was a shot in the arm.
