A Good Habit ~ Art Obsession ~ "Brown~Eyed Daisies and Chrysanthemums " Bas- Relief Painting


Paint Party Friday Week 47 ~ Year 3

Art has it's way with me, almost always , if I let it.
Usually, even before dawn has waken, it quietly arrives accompanied by the high pitched vocal of a hunger cat by way of a strong aroma of percolating coffee entering my senses and triggering my creative habit…..my "Art Obsession Habit ". A habit I happily accept with a few minor negatives thrown in, like one  having too many unfinished projects. One of those unfinished projects is this Bas- Relief of potted daisies and chrysanthemums I've had for some time now. A found art piece which was never finished and had the worst colour ever.The original background was a chocolate brown and the flowers were painted gold. So I decided to give it a fresh coat of white gesso paint.

 After a number of applications of a monochromatic colour and drying periods in-between, I mixed some paints and started to repaint it. I also used some interference gold and mother of pearl for the flowers. In the process of deciding on the shadowing of the florals ,my daughter mentioned that the work reminded her of Van Gogh's Sunflowers painting in the way I had painted only a few of the daisy centres brown. I had never realized it until she mentioned it but her remark did make me feel good about this work's progress.

For now, I call it “Brown ~ Eyed Daisies and Chrysanthemums”

Love some FEEDBACK on where to shadow : ) THANKS

Until Later
