Here is the study I did:
|My Grandma's garden, Malèves 10"x12" oil on board|
I painted this from the living room and had the french windows wide open:
I set up on the living room carpet and as I forgot my palette in UK, I borrowed one my Grandma's tray. (I promise I cleaned it afterwards and didn't stain the carpet!)
That's me with my painting smock. I'm aware I look rather ridiculous but it enables me to wear it over my clothes without having to change. So it's convenience before style here!
Here is my grandma, comfortably wrapped up who had been watching me paint with affection whispering several "oh" and "ha" here and there as I was gradually suggesting her plants and flowers in the painting. She was very happy with it so I'm glad it will turn into a nice souvenir.
