Thanks so much to everyone who joined my Zoom Flower Painting Demo!! It went great. And here is the end result. I'm very happy with it. I ended up adding the little red bud after all - otherwise I didn't change a thing. Cheers to all those familiar faces and so nice to meet new people too!! See you on Zoom soon.

This little yellow cup is my new favourite still life object. So cute! These flowers from my garden sat perfectly in it. You can check out the time lapse video of me painting this one on my Instagram.

I got to indulge in my favourite colour... again! Opera Pink (yummy), which I floated onto the page next to some warm reds. Then, all those cool greens and blues in the jar, those floaty bits, so abstract and fun to paint. Yummy, yummy, yummy!

I finished planting my garden today! It was the perfect weather for it - not a cloud in the sky and there was a constant breeze. Ahh. The circle of spring.

Backlit painting of two pink flowers, and a little friend who is a bit heartbroken... he ended up on the sidelines. But the two big friends are looking out for him. : )
Here are a few detail pics and the painting matted.

Today's coat is a lot different than yesterday's big yellow one! ; )
This is the first time one of my "In Conversation" paintings has the subjects standing. No one is sitting at cafes right now! #doh.
Another very splish-splash watercolour. There really is no medium like it.
The time-lapse film of this one is over on my Instagram page - https://www.instagram.com/noramacphailart/

The Yellow Jacket

People reading - it's such a great painting topic and has been through art history. I think because the reader is so involved and concentrating on reading, that it makes for good body language. The big yellow coat was an added bonus.

$120 - 8x5 1/4" original oil on board

This two-colour-palette portrait was painted with a warm red and a cool blue, and white of course. I love the limited palette because, not only does it create consistent greys, but it forces me to really find colour variations in just two colours.

More and more I realize how much adding people's hands helps with expression. In this piece, they kind of mirror each other. One of my pieces for my ongoing "In Conversation" series.
