16 x 20 oil painting by Pat Fiorello
Saw many beautiful hydrangeas while teaching a painting workshop up at the Bascom in Highlands, North Carolina last week. That served as the inspiration for painting these hydrangeas in sunlight. Below is some of the preparation I did before getting started, planning out the design and value pattern as well as the initial block in and development of the painting.
I'll be teaching a "Painting Flowers in Oil Alla Prima" workshop in Norcross GA on 9/7-9/9. You are welcome to participate even if you are new to oil painting. We still have space available if you'd like to join in the fun. You can learn more and register on this web page .
