Here I am starting the last panel. I had to re-do the layout due to a change in the electrical outlet. Also Notice how I changed the direction of the stem for the center flower. I want it to "tie-in" to the last panel so the last flower doesn't seem so isolated.
Well the customer picked brown.A tip for solid circles.......draw a circle in the circle to make sure that you are staying true to the curve. It will be a great guideline and you will see if you go off center right away.
I sent a progress photo to my customer and she wants more red, so I say let there be RED! I have flagged which petals will be changed and I think that will give her the effect she wants. Thank goodness for this modern day technology. We are about 2,000 miles apart....that would have been an expensive re-do!
Well it's time to get back to work. I have accomplished quite a bit, just haven't had time to post photos. So here you are, some progress photos. I've got the blue background down and have started the "cross over" to the next panel.
I am a proffessional mosaic artist and live in a one room palapa on the beach in a small town near Puerto Vallarta, Mexico called Bucerias. I have renovated a residential plaza that was located around the corner into an art center with 4 galleries, mosaic school, painting and cooking schools also. I founded a local art walk for all the galleries in town and now it just sounds like I am bragging! The summer of 2009 is going to be all about experimenting for me. First this blog, then I took some kite surfing lessons and next painting lessons!
