Day 1 ~ Aloe Vera

This is my first painting for 30 Paintings in 30 Days in September 2016 ~ a large Aloe Vera plant that grows in a pot on a railroad tie on my patio. It is surrounded by vines of sweet autumn clematis that I thought would be nice to include in the painting, but it would take too much time…Instead I used 3 new paint colors Cobalt Teal to fill in the background, Indian Red on the shadows of the pot and Viridian green. This strange plant looks like it is practically falling out of the pot, but it seems to be well rooted and still growing after many years…
