Wild Flower Wheel - A Little Corner in the Garden

Acrylic on 9x12 Water Color paper.
This is for a WDE (Weekend Drawing/Painting Event) at WetCanvas. Mary was our Host.

I was drawn to the different shapes objects and greens in this composition.
After laying in another layer of gesso, I blocked in the basic elements in the composition,
darkening the foreground, just laying  a good foundation. with thinned paint.
I then worked on the building layers and basic shapes, leaves, adding thicker paint as I proceeded.
At the end the flowers,  final touches and highlights were added thickly to give texture and dimension..
Thanks for having a look!!!

Hey Hi there Helen thank you, so great to see you drop by. I've missed your visits, but I know you've been busy with the new grandson these past months and that's a special priority, for Grandparents. LOL

I love how you really captured the sense of rust on the wheel.

Corrine, hi how great to see you. Thanks for the visit. Not my ordinary type of painting this one. I played with textures and color to try get the rust look.
Will be by to see you more often.....
