I am working on a 12 x 12 canvas this afternoon that is a fund raiser for scholarships in my art group up north.
This is totally a ton of work, by the way.
I had to special prep the canvas to work with watercolor plus several sandings.
Then I had to adapt a landscape photo to a square format (glad for the app on my iPad for that).
Then I had to draw the rather complicated picture (gridded).
Then TRACE it on the canvas. This is all fiddly stuff and takes SO long.
I had the drawing done another day. So today I did the tracing and started the painting.
The photo ref was taken in downtown Leesburg, FL a few winters's ago. Don't remember if the flower cart is still there or not.
The store (Sweets and Treats) is not there anymore either I don't think.
Quite a ways yet to go but I did make a dent in it. We all sell our paintings for $50 and it earned quite a bit last summer!
It is a gorgeous day here in central FL…85 and sunny.
Dinner in the crock pot so I'd have lots of time to play in the studio.
Now time for a glass of nice cold wine out on the patio.
