Out in my garden, I have some different varieties of clematis growing.
This particular one I thought would make a nice painting.

Here's the pencil drawing

then I got carried away painting and didn't photograph as much as I should for a work in progress, so you can see its quite far along.
When you are winning with greens - you don't stop!

If I was going to paint the obelisk black as it is in real life, I wouldn't have masked it. ( the masking is blue)
But I have in my mind to make it a rusty metal structure, to add a little more interest.


  1. Looks like it's coming along nicely!

  2. Beautiful background... so soft and gentle.

  3. Thanks, Teresa, I tried to paint it soft so it would be thrown right back, to give a feeling of depth.
