Now my eye can be more critical...since I am seeing this on the computer screen. The eye level I painted at focuses right on the stems, and the large hosta leaf points off the canvas....so this is just another of the hundreds we must do to learn our art! I'm happy that I didn't put the vase "dead center"....the yellow Stella Dora lily is almost the center....and may be the focal point. I used the violet to make the yellow "sing". So I make some changes...soften the large hosta, add another curling down on the other side and finally remake the maple leaf(lower right) into a hosta!

I'm doing another self-portrait sketch....using a digital color photo which was altered in Adobe Photoshop to have "poster" lines....
My sketch in the new Sharpie fine line pen and pencil....I think, seeing them here on the screen, that I could have made some things a little larger to keep proportions more in line with reality (What fun is reality anyway?)

This one with Chinese lanterns and bittersweet is a special painting for Julie Marie of "Celtic Lady" blogfame! She had written about these wonderful fall color plants and I was able to secure this creative commission from her!
This is a quick study of a vase of lilac from last spring...however, I only just today put the finishing touches (and splashes!) on it!
This one is for sale on ETSY! (SOLD!)
