20" x 20", Oil on Board
Every now and then a flop turns out alright - like it was meant to be. This painting is just that. I'd painted a very thick iris painting - and yet - here and there there are bits of the lemony yellow undertoning showing through, especially in the top right hand. I wanted it that way. But the flowers and leaves I just could get the colors right. It was turning much too dark for a light sky. So I started to scrape. The colors that remained on the canvas was starting to look right so I loaded up the palette and started over, however on several places I liked the way the streaks looked from the initial scraping so I laid down color and then used a rag to drag the paint.
Though textured the effect of the dragging the paint makes this look like a watercolor and the colors remained soft.
This painting is available through the on-line gallery, Ugallery. A painting of mine is also on their sister site - Paperwork in a limited edition print form - however you have the ability to choose the size of print you'd like. If you get a chance, please visit the two sites.
