Sky & backgrounds were already painted.
David helped me today with photographing some of my artwork. It took us most of the morning. After lunch I went back to the studio to clean up and put things in their rightful place from our photography session. I had three little canvases that had the backgrounds painted. I painted on them and then came home. Two tiny irises and a 5" x 3" landscape. It was a fun afternoon. Below is our photography set-up in the back of the studio.
This is an adventure for me, something I've always wanted to do: to be a real Artist! So I rented a studio, lets see how it goes.
