I really enjoyed painting this scene – it was an arrangement that allowed for exploring all types of pinks, magenta and violet, along with varying textures.
#10 Sweet Pea at Window is an oil pastel (12×9) on a gessoed prepared Ampersand Board (love this surface). The painting started with an acrylic underpainting that was sealed with two coats of gesso applied thick with a brush for textured lines. Once the gesso dried the fun began – loved painting the scene. I have very few paintings with pinks and wow I just let loose layering on the colors of the Sweet Pea.
It’s a bit crisper in person – but I think you have a good idea of what it looks like. Click onto the image for a larger view.
The painting was based on a reference image from Wetcanvas library.
