Well, I haven't been real inspired to work on the Red Angus painting but I wanted to use up the paint on my palette so painted the narcissus. Still not happy with my painting but at least I got it finished - do I get brownie points for that?

Oh, it's 6 x 6 inches square on a canvas panel.

Also, just got back from Hobby Lobby where I picked up one of the Master's Touch brushes. There were all kinds of them for oil and acrylic and I wasn't sure which kind Faisal and Susan got but I bought the synthetic hog bristle since I have tons of the golden taklon brushes. I only bought one just to see if I like it.

Whew! the yellow in the petals really looks bright now that I see it posted but it's not that way in real life. My camera must be picking it up more than it should.

You get lots of brownie points for bringing the feeling of Spring into your painting. I'm sure most of you throughout the country are thrilled that soon the narcissus will be raising their heads.

I don't find the yellow too much, but I'm sure it is much softer in the original. Great way to use up oyur palette.

Hi Jan,

This is fantastic! I love how the orange is just right in its surrounding. The white (and yellow) petal looks good. I frankly don't think it will take away too much if you reduce or increase the yellow paint. Very good job. Glad to see that you are painting. The world needs more artist.

Faisal

Thanks Judy and Faisal. I was surprised at how much my camera picked up. Mostly it's stuff that seems very subtle when viewed in real life.

Anyway, hope to get back to the red angus soon.

Hi Jan You have earned dozens of brownie points by just painting! The petals look really good, I like the contrast of the bright colour with the muted background. Keep at it!

Thanks, Alan. It feels good to be painting again whether the actual paintings are any good or not.
