Last Day in My Studio (Caryn's Kite)

I have to go back to work tomorrow after a very enjoyable and productive five days off. Ugh. But at least I spent the last day enjoying the afternoon in my studio! I had a photo I've been meaning to paint for years and years. I've even tried a couple times but always hated what I came up with. But today I managed something at last! Here it is step-by-step.

The finished product! If only it photographed a little better. There are actually hundreds of colours in that big white field, but it all sort of washed out. All the colours that were there a few steps back are still there, just layered and blended. This closeup has a few more of them, try to imagine that anywhere it looks like it's white, because it's actually anything but.

  1. Fab and so colourful! Great to have achieved your goal of painting the photo at last.
    Hope work is ok when you go back - it always feels a bit of a wrench at first, and a bit strange...
    Soon be the weekend!
