Studio Work - Time for COLOR!

Enough already of the green foliage! I need to paint some COLOR! I headed over to one of my favorite metro parks early today, Inniswood, to take some photos of flowers. I generally don't paint flowers, because they are HARD to paint, but I really needed to paint something colorful. I decided to use up the oil paint on my palette and do a small 6x6. I went back to a technique I had tried in the past with my abstracts and used it for flowers. Another artist online does this technique and she recently had an excellent video reminding me how to do it. I had a blast! Finally something colorful!

Yes, this is a fuzzy photo. I like it because you don't have to squint to see the design!
