|Hemerocallis Mildred Mitchell|
I have a new Daylily in the Garden. Her name is Mildred Mitchell and she is STUNNING!! I have bored my Flickr Friends with her photos ENDLESSLY and finally decided to try her in Watercolour.
Below, is a VERY poor photo of Mildred, because the room was dark and I took it on my phone. In reality, it is the same as the one above but on regular paper. This is the one I used to draw my outlines... The original photo is on 8.5"x11" paper. Mildred will be twice that when she is finished- I HOPE!!!
|A blurry picture of Mildred with the grid lines - Kind of like Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds??|
|The paint was not FULLY dry so the paper is a WEE bit warbly. Nice and flat now.|
I have been spending a LOT of time drawing, messing with paint colours and generally getting back into my WC comfort zone. Mind you, I am SO used to working SMALL and now I am working BIG- or at least biggER that the Comfort Zone is not actually TOO close just yet. I have some trepidation about this piece as there is so much space with so little detail. I am just going to have to work REALLY hard!
However, Drawing feels great again and I keep picking up little things I find in the garden and playing with them...
