Sherri posed her model, Alex, in a wooded area near Sedona, Arizona on an autumn day. The late afternoon sun glows in the trees and silhouettes Alex as she pulls her shawl around her. A look of quiet joy on her face. Sherri used elements of classical realism and impressionism to capture the warmth of the scene.
Sherri Aldawood didn't intend to always paint flowers, but over time her love of gardens started to permeate her art. She focuses on the light and color of the flowers on the canvas. Sherri prefers alla prima, working with wet layers of paint instead of letting them dry. She keeps the paint as wet as possible by using walnut and clove oil to extend the drying time.
