Lilacs of France

Lilacs of France
9 x 12 watercolor
By Pat Fiorello

I have been in France studying with master colorist Ovanes Berberian for the past week. Have several oil paintings in various stages of development, not ready to share yet, but this is a watercolor sketch of one of the oils I am working on. The weather has been bad rainy and cold. We are painting outside in natural light,  so it is not too comfortable but the upside is this time of year there are glorious flowers all around. These are lilacs from a nearby garden. We also have wisteria, irises and peonies ( all beautiful and challenging to paint). More to come soon.
