I hope to catch up on everyone’s blogs tomorrow – the last couple of days was spent painting and working in the gardens. Only two to go more paintings left in the challenge ~ continuing the countdown.
Lilac, #13 is an oil pastel (8×10) painted on a gesso prepared hardboard. A gouache underpainting was done, then two coats of clear gesso, then a very thin white wash in acrylic and finally layer, upon layer of oil pastel was applied. I’ve wanted to paint a lilac for the longest time, but felt unsure about approaching the petals and make the painting convincing. So here we are, why not do it as part of this challenge ~
