At the beginning of the week, I spent the morning with Roxanne Steed for a "Mentoring Monday". It was wonderful to listen to Roxanne talk through her painting as she explained each step of her process.
Concentrating on step two of Roxanne's process, it was blocking in large shapes with bold transparent colors. We used magenta, ultramarine blue and transparent yellow as our base colors. Boy was it bright and colorful!
And of course those colors were floating around my head that afternoon as I returned home to see our garden blooming with the same jewel tones. Roxanne also demonstrated the fracturing technique which is really exciting since I had already had a little bit of experience with it. But it was great to see how she handled it.
