Oil pastels: 7×5
Stonehenge Vellum finish paper
My second study on this floral arrangement as I continue to explore the use of soft, hard and lost/found edges. This time I used a Gouache underpainting to give some depth to the greenery – it left a matted finish which didn’t interfere when layers of oil pastels were applied.
A couple of petals could be changed and probably less of the yellow-green in the foreground of the arrangement, but I’m getting a feel for painting floral arrangements in a looser style. It’s progress, but still a lot more learning ahead.
