Dandelion WIP

As we all probably know, a lot of people woke up to snow and ice due to last nights winter storm... and since it was groundhog day, I am sure several people were eager to see how many more weeks of winter we would be facing.  Even though I am in Alabama, I am sick of being cold. 
According to the groundhog, we're going to be facing an early spring.  And, with that I was inspired to paint something related to spring/summer.

Here is the picture I am currently working on:

I just began painting it, and I believe I am going to fall in love with this picture before it's over.  I have never painted Dandelions before, and I never realized how much I enjoy looking at them.
I sketched it in Photoshop and played with the background a bit.
Painting is being done in Corel Painter.
Well, there you have it, my work in progress.  Hope you all had a Happy Groundhog Day!


  1. I am in love with this painting!

  2. Haha, we use the word WIP at work all the time, I thought we were the only ones. :P

  3. Hehe, we do them for news stories...for ones that editors need to look at, they're titled WIP. If they're ready for broadcast, we change the name to something else :)

  4. Oh that is great! Definitely makes sense to use it. While I am still working on a picture, I always use WIP in my save titles, otherwise... I forget they need to be finished and/or get lost in all my other files.
