Hydrangeas in the Sun

Hydrangeas in the Sun
12 x 16 Oil Painting
by Pat Fiorello
I've ben traveling for most of the summer and glad to finally be home for awhile.
Today I bought some hydrangeas and set them up to paint outside in my backyard  (yes, I know it's summer in Atlanta). I was able to spend about an hour and a half outdoors before it got too hot, but had enough down to be able to finish the painting indoors.

Since I was just getting warmed up after a painting hiatus of a few weeks and I was working outdoors,  I painted on a 12 x 16 canvas. In hindsight, I wish I had had a larger canvas to get in more of the scene. I plan to revisit this subject on a larger canvas with a vertical composition so I can get in more of the background of the scene.

Here are some of the photo's from my backyard.
