Crocus In Cobalt
4"x6" original oil on gallery wrap canvas
Just a few crocus came up this year.
This one was just right for one of my
cobalt bottles. Painted in 'alla prima'
style... all at once... was just enough time
to paint this little white gem before it
faded under the lights. A cool light gave
as close to the natural light as possible
using a bulb. I try to paint what I see and
try to see as much as possible. That may
sound weird, but most people don't
really see all that is there. One of the jobs as
an artist is to portray a vision of the colors,
reflections, values and lights. The shadow
cast through the jar was really that color.
