8 x 10 Oil Painting
by Pat Fiorello
Did this painting with a differnt approach than my often used, transparent underpainting followed by opaques method. Below are the steps in the progression from initial drawing and laying of darks, midtones and lights , in that order as well as the 3 different value families mixed on my palette.
The original photo reference was sent to me by my cousin Marie. It's a dahlia from her Brooklyn container garden, planted and tended by her husband Paul.
