5"x7" oil on linen, gallery wrap...framing optional
These lilacs have been sitting on the dining room table
for a few days. Couldn't resist! This was painted Alla Prima...
meaning, all at once. Instead of painting an 'under painting'
in gray tones and values, this was painted from start to finish
at one sitting. Starting with an under painting of sorts, blocking in
large areas of values with local colors. Darks and background
first, building the shapes and values in large areas working
to the lights and details.
In my opinion, the best way to painting a subject that will fade
quickly. If I did a value study in grays, the flowers would be
wilted by the time it was ready to apply the glazes.
