I spent an afternoon painting from life and taking pictures of my model, Alex. This painting depicts the light near the end of the day known as the "golden hour", when the sun is low in the sky and very bright and warm.
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.
