Really much to hot for us outside, so we've fun in the studio together. I've brought some gorgeous Gladioli from the field at home and falling in love with the vibrant colors of full summer.

Just received a new book from Kees van Aalst, so it needs only a fresh white paper, some juicy colors and a cool rosé secco. Perfect companions to spend this lovely summer evening with. 

For my first exercise I took the part of my garden just in the right corner of this photo. Observing and visualizing and then sketching without seeing on the paper very gentle with a pencil. It becomes darker and darker and so I'd to improve with my little palette the things I've remembered to see.  Above you can see the result and I hope you enjoy it.

Yesterday I've done the first wash with no plan for anything, just enjoying the colors. Today I say that it could be a flamingo and  so I started with a very loose sketch.

Painting with a reduced palette is always a good possibility to think about values, light and shadow. So I started (again) with some fruit- and vegetables still life and here comes the two first.
