This past week has been all about painting--both kinds.
Most of my time has been spent on painting windows and cupboard doors.
These are the windows, newly made for the kitchen in the house we're renovating. These custom windows are incredibly expensive as they're opening sash window style made the way they did it 100 years ago. What you see is the exterior view. They're ready to be installed on Monday.
The other painting I've been doing is the water color flower painting. I've enjoyed this and have learned a lot but I'm not all that happy with the finished product. Some of the petals don't look quite right to me. And it's probably been overworked. This is a tendency I have--to take things past the point at which they're finished.
I kind of like it better before I added the yellow for the stamens. But with water color there's no going back. I'm starting another flower painting on a sheet of paper twice the size. We'll see how this one goes.
