I was so busy painting the big red flowers I didn't realize the little white daisies were doing their own thing! #up #down and #peekaboo
Here are a few close ups -

I had a blast figuring out the many reds in this little set up. The warmth of the red glass and the little polka dots challenged me for hours! The sides are painted pink too. Also with little polka dots. : )
Pics below show my process and my materials.

Prismacolor Coloured Pencil Portraits. Hmm... despite having fun with coloured pencils recently, they just aren't for me. They loose their point quickly because they are so soft (wax), unlike pencils (graphite). I gave it three chances and now I'm moving onto something else.
Also, they are very difficult to erase. Uh oh!

6x12" oil painting on 1"panelAfter sketching and painting this little building numerous times, I've just been informed by a Riverdale Farm employee that it's called the Donnybrook Building. This is just the bottom half of the building. It was once two stories which kind of explains the small door (that seems to fascinate me). It's believed that farm animals used to live on it. Yep... 'on' it. I'm going to continue investigating the history of this awesome little building. To be continued... ; )

The streetcars were just coming and going Sunday morning at the Russel Car House fix it shop. It made for quite a challenge while painting with the Urban Sketchers Toronto group. I realized I probably wouldn't have tired this subject on my own but when someone else picks the painting spots, you never know what might happen!My set up which sits on my lap.
Fortunately I was under a big shady tree on such a hot day, hence the blue tinge on my photos. Probably the most challenging outdoor subject I've ever painted from life. #phew

A final drawing from Riverdale Farm. I'm not sure why I picked a Peacock Green but there ya' have it. In this one I added some people, and a little puppy, just to bring some life to it. : )
The subjects at this farm are never ending!
