Back to oil painting after commissions, and large watercolors. This is an experiment in color. The background is transparent darks, chosen to read as distance in the painting. The foreground flowers, leaves and pot have all been painted over a transparent color. All have been overpainted with mixtures that have some opaque paint in them.
My tip today is another great book. I have loved reading "The Oil Painting Course You've Always Wanted" by Kathleen Lochen Staiger.
