Wishing for Spring

by Pam Harp on 02/04/16

This painting came to life while a blizzard was roaring outside this past week. Spring was in the air on my paint pallet and paper.

Detailed drawing lightly sketched on Arches 140# Watercolor paper. I started painting the blooms first.

Once I have the blooms all finished, it's time to start on the leaves.

Finally, the background is added. This piece was finished by attaching it to a cradled hardboard panel, then varnished so that it can be displayed without glass. Now I have a touch of color in my home until the Spring bulbs bloom in my garden.

The making of a Dogwood Triptych

by Pam Harp on 01/11/16

The definition of a Triptych  •  A picture (such as a painting) that has three panels placed next to each other.

These photos will take you through the progression of this painting. It was gift for my son and his wife for their new home.

This is a large painting, split into three panels.

All the dogwood blooms are finished and now for the background.

All finished and ready to varnish.

A beautiful painting in a beautiful new home!

I hope you enjoyed seeing these photos. This was a fun project. I hope to do another one on the near future.
