The Rhode Show
20x20" oil on linen
I've been eyeing my neighbor's rhododendron for several days...wanting to paint it so badly! Finally was able to get some clippings today!
I wanted to keep it light and airy, so I worked at staying high key. I found that the "blocky" shapes in the flowers themselves lent themselves to a little different technique. I kept the brushstrokes sharp and treated the whole painting as angles and shapes.
Thanks for visiting my artwork blog!
