“Doña Marisa” was painted from a live model. I used a limited palette of just four colors, plus white, to give the painting a timeless quality. The piece was painted on linen canvas and mounted on high quality canvas board. This piece will need a frame for display.

Getting to Know Sherri

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.
