I spent an enjoyable spring day in my backyard painting a small sketch of my model Leah and taking photographs. From the sketch and photos, I later painted this larger work in my studio.

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.
