DeliStar Mums

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.
