Pansy Study

Pansy Study/ oil on canvas board/ 8" x 8"/ SOLD

The goal for this study was to paint pansies that were more abstract and less "cartoon-like". To accomplish this, I blocked in my large shapes. I then messed them all up, running the colors between the foreground and the background using the end of my brush. After I repainted the shapes of the flowers and the vase, it looked like the smaller version below. Finally, I added thick paint with a palette knife and cut into the shapes with the knife and my brush handle to add the texture and integrate the colors. Pansies will be another series, I can feel it!
