|Hydrangeas in Blue|
Oil Painting by Pat Fiorello
12 x 16
Here's today's painting. The hydrangeas are out in bloom and beautiful. They are one of my favorite flowers to paint.
Here is the still life set up which I simplified a bit:
|The start- using only transparent oil paints|
Adding in a background underpainting, still only transparent paint.
After the 2nd stage, where I added opaques and adjusted colors, values edges, brushwork. On the easel left, with the set up on the right.
It was a fun day!
I plan to try the same arrangement in a very different approach later this week and will share what I learn.
