Fall is here and it's time to paint mushrooms! This is the start of a new smaller painting. Hopefully I can get the moss to look mossy.
The final shroom. Moss is pretty difficult to get right. For this moss, I did faint strokes in a light green color and then went in with darker strokes between. The lighter areas in the final painting show what that looked like at first. Then around the base of the mushroom, I went through with more colors layered on top (blue greens, yellow greens, and pale yellow). I will have to practice some different moss types in the future!
It's finally happening! Some friends and I will be putting on a cephalopod-themed art exhibit here in Monterey at Cafe Lumiere on OCTOber 19th (get it?). I will have 3 paintings in the exhibit and I'm so excited to see it all on display. The show will go through mid-December, but come on by for our opening night party on Oct. 19th, 6-9pm.
