Backyard Splash

Another peak into the process of a painting as my "Diving Series" continues to develop.

The beginning  - collaging on the diver and mapping out the composition 

Trying to figure out a color scheme by painting a quick layer of color.

The final color palette - Blue, Green, Yellow, Red, and shades of Brown.

  1. Hi Cathy! How are you? I just wanted to say thankyou for leaving such a sweet comment on my blog. You are such an encourager and I really appreciate you. :) Have a wonderful, creative weekend!

  2. Hi Cathy, I come to you via Maya @ Completely Coastal. I just had to drop in and tell you how much I love your art. You've combined three of my favorite things — the beach, art and vintage photos! Wow, you brought smiles to this old beach gals heart today. I got lost in your Etsy store and marked one in particular as a favorite, though I love them all.

    I also read back a bit and enjoyed the story of your inspiration. I also come from a family of beach lovers and early beach days as a toddler were spent on Jacksonville Beach. I have a HUGE collage frame in my living room, filled with family beach photos. Brings me joy everyday!
