Flower Study #10 Hydrangeas

Flower Study #10
 Oil Painting by Pat Fiorello

Tried a different flower and color palette for this study of hydrangeas after the roses from last week.

Below is my original reference photo;

Here is the initial block in in dark transparent colors;

Then beginning to add in the leaves, next I added background color to cover the entire canvas with  a layer of paint, then I came in with brushstrokes to depict petal shapes and add lighter areas to build form with the final painting depicted above. I took some artistic license to modify colors and shapes of the flowers yet still have them feel like hydrangeas.
