To start these huge pieces and make them have a cohesive look, I've mapped out the design for each canvas and formed a color study. I'm going for a relaxed yet elegant look, so the variety of blues, greens, and grays will work well...with pops of gold leaf, of course.
This week was "Bring Your Parent to School Day". So, having triplets this kept me real busy. I've been itching to get more of these paintings done. But, how could I pass up the opportunity to spend school-time with my 6th graders...before they no longer want me in school?
