Something Blue- Flower Painting Workshop

"Something Blue"
12 x 16 oil painting
by Pat Fiorello

This is my demonstration painting from my "Painting Flowers Alla Prima in Oil" workshop this past weekend at the Spruill Arts Center in Dunwoody, GA.

A fun group of students all did a "paint-along" of this arrangement with me.  I shared a method I often use to get a painting started in a fun, freeing way- and that is to just start out without drawing,  just massing in  general shapes with only transparent colors. The beginning part often looks way too bright, but then colors and values are adjusted during the next phase where opaque paints are brought in to bring the whole thing into balance.
