It's been a couple of weeks since I've posted here on my blog as I've been concentrating on some larger paintings in oil. I have several on the go and this is the first to be completed (I'm calling it finished for now).
I took a year out to experiment and learn about watercolour and what it can do, now I feel it's time to get back to some oil painting.
That's not say I've hung up my watercolour brushes to dry!
These flowers are from my friend's garden. We were sitting outside in the shade (with a coffee of course) when the sun suddenly illuminated the leaves from behind. The background is acrylic with a pearly effect roughly brushed on, the rest of the painting is in oil.
I haven't got a very original title yet so if anyone has any ideas..... you haven't let me down yet!
