Deli Star Mums 15x16 oil on linen
I tried a little different technique on this painting. Instead of my usual alla prima style, (working wet into wet often mixing color right on the canvas), I worked a bit from glazes and layering. The mood is a bit more somber than my looser alla prima paintings.
It is always fun and challenging to change things up and try something new.
It took a couple days work because I had to let the first layer dry before working over top with the glazes.
Just a different approach. I found it easier to control colors but harder to get the transparent colors to be as effective. It's worth some more studying.
