Here are the steps to create this painting!
#1 Purple Gray Background
#2 Rough in Your painting with quick Dry Acrylic-- Use Golden Open for all the Details and Blending if Possible. -- I used Blue to mix my darker orange tones.
#3 Work on Evening Out the Background With Open.
#4 Add Correct Colors to Orange with Open.
#5 Begin adding reds and Blues/ Purple Tones for Grapes.
#6 I needed to add grape shapes into the painting as I worked.
#7 I went in with a Blending Brush / soft and dry to soften edges.
#8 Still adding in correct details and colors, getting closer.

Abstract Paint and Collage Elements
Forget Me Not,
This was made as a memoriam to my Mother, Louise Butler, artist. It deals with the illusive element of time and memory. It includes part of one of her drawings and a part of a page from a high school or college dance program.

Green Sky Warning, Pastel on Suede Mat Board
Each one of these pastel paintings were done on different days. I really enjoyed doing them and would like to continue. I have been using Pan Pastel to begin and adding a harder stick pastel as they begin to take shape. At the end I was working completely from my imagination but looked at some cloud and green sky photos to see if there is enough realism to be convincing.
