Painting and Vino Round 2 Van Gogh "Almond Branches"



Instructors painting

Here is a look at round 2 Painting and Vino with Kasie. I was really looking forward to this class for 2 reasons.  For one it was one of the paintings I really like, and two it was at Mama's 39 which I love because they have great food there.  The painting we were recreating was Van Gogh's Almond Blossom.  This class picture was called Van Gogh "Almond Branches".

The first step was painting our back ground, then we added the branches. I was working so hard on the blending not knowing we would really be covering it up. 


After we had the branches we went in and darkened one side of the back ground. I totally fell behind on this step and had to work fast on catching up. As you can see I had half done and Kasie had hers done. 


When I caught up I added yellow highlighting and brown along with lines to look like bark. 


My hands some how always end up with so much paint on them.  At this point our instructor was teaching us how to do the blossoms. 


Finished piece, I thought.

We thought it would be  good to get a photo of all the paintings together Left to right: instructors painting she painted with us, instructors painting she painted before,  Kasie's and mine. 

Mine painting is on the bottom. 

Well, after having ours up there we realized we needed to add  more blossoms. One side 
note; we realized painting seems to be easier when standing.
