Pink Cosmos

Pink Cosmos, 6x6, oil

Waiting on some white oil paint so I can continue with my large painting, so I painted a small 6x6 inch painting instead. I like the joyful mix of colors as the pink cosmos dance about. You can purchase this painting on my Etsy store front. Also, take a bit of time to view my website: SpohnStudo.com

Starting a new painting

Just getting started on a new painting. Here is a preview of one small section that has been painted today.
Sometimes I some what draw out my painting with pastels. They are great as they have colors and when I paint a lot of flowers this map will keep me on the right track. As you can see, I do not do detailed drawings. Just whimsical scratches on the panel that let me know where I want to place each flower or critter.

Stay tune to see the final results.
