|Crystal Lake reflects the Red Mountains
|After making a rough sketch, I started painting the sky by using the wet in wet technique.
I used cobalt blue and some June bug blue, after letting it run and dry just a little, I dabbed kleenex to pick up paint where I wanted clouds.
|After the sky was dry I washed in some orange at the top of the mountains
|Matted painting. Now I need a title
|This is "Sweet Violet"
I made her for my great niece, Emma, who turned 2 in August
|I found the pattern on the internet, and she was quite easy to put together.
Do you remember the song: "Sweet Violet, Sweeter than the roses, covered all over from head to toe,
Covered all over with Sweet Violets…"
