I’m on the prowl for something really spectacular…The Saguaros are full of blossoms and buds-spectacular enough. I find one with a front-row-seat. Lucky me! Zoom in for better composition and to really see. As the sun warms up the buds, they begin to drip with nectar. Then the bees show up, not too many thank you!
I’ve decided to work with a simple harmony: Yellow-orange, blue violet, blue and blue-green. The pastel surface is Jack Richeson sanded gator foam board primed a yellow-orange. I like this surface because it grips so well and you don’t need fixative.Take a break, look around. Behind us see the Library and old greenhouse.
The light is really changing now and is quite different from start time. I think I have what I need so I’m going to stop for now, take the work home, and resolve it in the studio.Back in the studio I pushed the temperature a little more and reinforced the light source.
