Pansy Fever Oil Painting

 Pansy Fever by Marion Hedger
Oil on canvas board 24x30cm (approx 10" x 12")
Painted wet in wet.

Another pansy painting straight off the easel. I love painting these pansies, and those yellow ones really talk to me. This is slightly larger than my earlier pansy painting (see HERE) and more of a still life composition. I painted it wet in wet, trying to stay loose. I succeeded in parts, but I still find myself trying to put in all the details.
This is still wet and I will look at it tomorrow to see what needs tweaking. Those blue shadows are too blue in this photo, so I will also see if I can get a better photo. I always have trouble with photographing blues.

In progress Colourful Panisies Oil Painting - Garden 101 series

Colourful Pansies Work in Progress
Oil on canvas panel, 18x24cm

I am working on some pansy paintings at the moment. I am cheating a little because they are not strictly from my garden, but on the way into the garden. I need something floral and colourful to paint after trying to get back into the swing after a long vacation, and these fit the bill nicely.

I am still looking at this painting to see if it is finished and what tweaks may be needed. I think I may need to work on the back purple pansy as does not recede enough.

I will post an update when finished

Pink Mallow Garden 101 series Oil Painting

Pink Mallow oil painting
Oil on canvas panel, painted wet in wet
24 x 18 cm (approx 10" x 7")

Shipping options

I painted this as part of my Garden 101 series in the summer. I didn't quite like it at that stage. I was looking through my "to be finished" pile and liked it much better than when I first painted it. I tweaked a few bits and now I feel it is finished.
