365 Days of Art: Day 299 – More Rose Petal Detail

The challenge: Create some form of visual art, no matter how small, each day for a full year.

I just spent about two hours buffing the chalk-painted chairs I did a few days ago. Basically, I had already applied two coats of wax and waited 24 hours. Today I buffed the wax, and trust me, two hours of buffing wax on two chairs with lots of bracket thingies is a full-body workout. Hence, short blog tonight.

I completed a few more rose petals today in car line. I still have a ways to go as I darken the shadows and add more detail, and the whole picture looks odd right now because some shadows are dark and some aren’t. Give me a few days and it will start looking normal.

Here is a closeup of what I’ve done:

Here is what it looks like with half the amount of detail after the initial layers of color.

Here is the reference:

I’ve got to go. I’ve hit REM three times now, as I’ve been writing this blog post on my phone.

I’m she a great evening everyone!
