24"x24" Oil on Canvas
This past Wednesday I attended a one-day still-life workshop. We spent the morning doing quick value studies from a multitude of set ups ranging from a pair of scissors hung on a wall to red plastic chillies. For the afternoon session I decided to paint some luscious pink hydrangeas brought in by one of the other workshop attendees.
Granted these flowers may not resemble pink hydrangeas but I was pleased that I was successful in using a variety of brushstrokes and palette knife swipes to render the suggestion of flowers.
