"home"work

(11x15)
My first attempt at trying Carol Carter's method since I got home. I think I got somewhat too messy; I think because, painting at home, I sometimes (often?) rush too much and am not careful. When I go somewhere else to paint, like the art center or to a friend's house, I seem to be able to take my time better. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Masked with tape and miskit
Graded wash

The "glow": painted around the shapes while background is still damp
Start painting shapes ...
Drew and began another one; this one only masking the stamens; I'm going to paint the background in sections.

Doesn't look too messy to me - just loose and flowing and love those greens!

Hi Laura, I am catching up on your posts...wow, what an amazing workshop experience! Your colors have gained an intensity and glow!

It sure does 'glow'.
Has that intense color that I'm always so timid to use..Then again you have to know "how to use it" .

Thanks for sharing your progress. When I've been on a course, I think the hard begins when you get home.

Looks good to me .... The colours sing Laura see you are working with several options for the bg .... Your masking tape is blue there ! Must have been a superb course with carol .

I'm intrigued by this method, and the saturation. Lets do some! Robin
