Laundry Day in Saissaic

Driving through the French village of Saissaic we stopped by the side of the road to take pictures and were enchanted by the these linens hanging on the line to dry.

Below is the original photograph. It has been cropped and edited to add more flowers, and to change the color of the yellow roses to pink.

Next, I brought the photograph into Corel Painter X3 and began painting. Below is a sample of the painted work in progress. I rather like this loose stage and might re-work the painting to a more abstract, loose look.

Finally, the finished piece - painted with five different brushes - texture added and signed.
