Painting Zinnias and Multi-Tasking

Summer Saturday mornings at 8am we love to go to our Farmers Market. I love the Zinnias. Zinnias are summer to me. I begain with looking at my bouquet and sketching it out. I took a photo and printed it right away, so I have both that an the real thing to paint from. Here are the various stages: First liquid mask put in with a toothpick, then yellows. While drying, I spin more at my spinning wheel (gotta do something!). Then, the red & fuschia, and more liquid mask on top of yellow. Dry (and spin wool). Then light green on the white flowers. Then more mask on the reds. Dry and spin again. More on this tomorrow....
