Oil Painting by Pat Fiorello
9 x 12
Tried a totally different approach on the hydrangeas today using a method I learned from Susan Sarback, founder of the School of Color & Light, capturing more of an impressionist look. It's done totally with a palette knife and is very different from the "transparent start" and more classical approaches I used the past 2 days( see blog posts for the past 2 days). This one does look very different- partially due to the palette knife textural effects and also the intensity of colors achieved.
Oh Pat, I really like this one too. Love all of that yummy texture.ReplyDelete
Yes, I just started using the palette knife recently- for this particular approach it helps since the colors stay cleaner. didn't think Id like it- but it has it's benefits including MUCH easier clean up- no brushes to wash and lost of thick juicy color and texture!ReplyDelete
