Container glory oil painting
18x24cm (approx 7"x10")
oil on MDF canvas panel
Started using a brush and finished using a palette knife
Step 1, Loose block in of the local colours using thin paint
I reduced some of the busyness in the top right hand corner and added more highlights and shadows. I also made sure I had more 'breathing space' at the top of the flowers as I felt it was a bit too dense. I also made sure the colours were balanced adding a bit of red to the purples and some purples to the reds.
I painted some of my container geraniums last year. See HERE and HERE
