An Evening with Marvin {Day 5}

I got some painting in tonight.

A gray background felt like a good idea.

I’ve been eyeing a certain peony in my backyard knowing that tonight I would probably cut it and paint it. When I brought it inside, there was a little ant crawling around on the larger bud. He stayed for quite some time and I enjoyed seeing the movement as I painted. But then must have strolled somewhere else halfway through my painting and I haven’t seen him since. I named him Marvin.

My company for the evening, Marvin the ant.

The setup. I placed a finished painting from last week on the board for reference and inspiration. I want my florals to have a spontaneity about them. And I feel that painting from last week captured that spirit.

About 45 minutes in.
