Past Their Prime – WIP Complete

28 Feb

Finally completed. This photo actually shows a bit lighter than the painting – but you get the idea.  This painting took a lot of discipline to stay with it just by virtue of it’s size – full sheet (30″ x 22″) and the amount of detail.  Peonies and roses are tricky to draw out and require a lot of patience both drawing and in painting.  They are layer after layer of petals that are often not intuitively shaped or shaded.  I worked from a few reference photos for this – one for the jar, one for  the petals on the concrete bench and I combined two for the flowers.

Now I am on to a few poured paintings to loosen up – one of my favourite subjects – Mussel shells!
