Continuing with the flower challenge, #9 Coreopsis Early Sunrise are flowers I know well – they are just beginning to bud and hopefully within the next two weeks we’ll see them open.
#9 Coreopsis Early Sunrise, an oil pastel (8×8) is painted on a gesso prepared artist canvas board using mainly Senneliers and Holbeins. This time I experimented with the background using darks and lights along with complimentary colors adding a bit of drama for the flowers to shine. Artist canvas board isn’t a high quality surface and for some reason oil pastels tend to blend out on this material making it difficult to obtain clean lines, it’s very weird. But I like the effect for some paintings giving an impressionist style with soft edging.
