Renaissance Peonies

Renaissance Peonies
Renaissance Peonies  oil   18x28
I wanted to try something different with this painting.  I wanted to give it the feeling of the rich, dark, warm tones of the florals painted during the Renaissance period.  I used  transparent "red oxide" combined with glazes to create a luminous warmth to the darks. That also gave the painting more depth.  While I still love the effects of the alla prima (wet-on-wet) style, it does offer a different feel by incorporating the glazes over top the dried layers.
Thank you for viewing my art!
