new painting! ‘Wisteria in Lutry’

‘Wisteria in Lutry’ was painted from a photo I took in a nearby village called Lutry. These little village houses overlook the lake and are surely some of the most beautiful homes around here! I would certainly love to live in one!

They have pretty little gardens in front and lots and lots of wisteria. I love wisteria and its pretty colours!

 

This is actually an acrylic painting on thick watercolour paper. The sheet of paper measures 28 x 37 cm (11″ x 15″) and the painting itself measures 21 x 21 cm (8″ x 8″).

If you are interested in the process of this painting, take a look at following slideshow! I started off drawing a rough sketch with pencil. Then I painted the background wall colour, the shadows and then the details. I painted the plants last and they were the most challenging since I have very little practice painting plants! Well, luckily I didn’t mess it up and it all turned out well.

So well actually that I have decided to keep the original. However, I will be selling prints soon… I’m getting an amazing printer in two weeks time… can’t wait!

What do you think? Could this be the prettiest village on earth?

painting: blue bottle

Just 10 minutes ago I finished this painting and couldn’t wait to post it here!

Sadly, the photo doesn’t do it justice at all, somehow I couldn’t get the light right today…

I love love love blue glass everythings! I’m actually collecting jars and painting them blue because I want more blue glass around. This particular bottle was always blue, has a beautiful turquoisy colour and usually sits on a window sill in my old room. It’s always good to paint things that have sentimental value!

I painted it from a photo I took a while ago, it’s acrylic on canvas and 90 x 70 cm (35″ x 28″).

This painting is available in my shop! www.etsy.com/shop/RosannaBurford?ref=si_shop
