This is the rough draft of a painting I did for my brother. I did his on a smaller, wrapped canvas. The style of the background sparked my interest in sponge paintings.
This painting was done from a set that included the paints and a how-to booklet. I feel a little like a cheater when working on these kind of projects, but it was a great tool to learn how to mix colors, paint in layers, etc. Gotta learn somehow! And I always end up doing things my own way anyhow. Maybe I don't follow directions that well.
This is a painting of a B-2 bomber. My dad works for the company that builds them-Northrup Grumman-andI thought it'd be fun to give it a whirl. It is also the first landscape I've ever painted...pretty obvious, huh?
I wanted to paint some calla lilies, I fell in love with them when picking out flowers for my wedding. I haven't finished this by a long shot - I'm adding a couple more flowers and hopefully some holly, stephanotis, etc. that made up our Christmas wedding floral arrangement.
