It feels good to do some loose paint sketches on paper. If this looks vaguely "Christmas" that's because it is... a few more to follow this week.


  1. This is just lovely!! The colors are so soft. Looking forward to more!!

  2. Beautiful, Diane! Love the way the red ground glows through and the soft green square behind the flower gives it great focus and plays against the red tones wonderfully. Also like the way the stem is pulling out and back toward the viewer. Really nice piece!

  3. Love this Diane... Almost has an Asian feel to it, simple, serene, beautiful.

  4. Like Gwen, I am enamored of the way you painted the stem...kind of makes me wonder what's behind the amaryllis.
