What was your source for this piece?
Tell us a little more about your inspiration. A trip to the Morton Arboretum in Lisle, IL for Mother's Day was quite inspirational
Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this piece. 24" X 20" acrylic painting on gallery wrapped canvas of a path through blue flowers. The day was spent taking pictures of anything and everything that inspired me on a chilly but clear Mother's Day at the local arboretum. After going through all the photos, I worked in Photoshop to crop and edit (sometimes combining images) in order to produce a final layout for the painting. Starting with a pencil sketch in grid fashion and an under-painting of vermillion to anchor the image and contrasting shapes. I then began to block in colors moving from the background to the foreground building up more and more details.
