Sherri visited this English style garden in Kansas City on an overcast day. She was drawn to the way the cloudy sky accentuated the cooler colors of the flowers and trees, creating a very rich and inviting 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.
