Rose of Sharon
Rose of Sharon 12x24" oil on linen
Who knew the Rose of Sharon flower was shy about being painted? I hardly was an hour into the painting when all the blossoms started closing up!! So while I did work from life, I had no choice but to use my experience with flower painting to complete this painting. Working from memory and knowledge. It was more challenging than I had planned when I picked the flowers this morning! Oh well, chalk up another learning experience!
I hadn't painted grapes in a while..that was fun.
I used a bit of painting knife toward the end to create some texture.
