I did some preliminary sketches of the model Megan before painting the final piece.  I wanted to create a well-designed painting while keeping the brushstrokes fresh, as in a painting done from life.  This piece is painted on linen canvas, mounted on Gatorboard, and varnished with Gamvar.  It 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.
