Work in progress
"Beauty And Age"
16" x 20" on canvas
I laid this out very quickly a few minutes ago in acrylics. My intention is to finish it in oils. This is a scene at Descanso Gardens a few years ago. These gardens are in a suburb of Los Angeles, California. I have always meant to paint it, and it feels good to finally begin work on it and also to do a larger canvas for a change. I can see I need to work on the angle of the bench; like I said, this is a very rough quick lay-in of color and shapes. Below is my reference photograph.
I believe that twisting vine is a wisteria plant not yet in bloom. Please correct me if I am wrong.
Now back to the easel !
