I really planned to have this painting finished yesterday, but you know how things go ~ happy to say that #14 is completed. Forsythias forced to bloom indoors during Winter is a perfect way to brighten up even the coldest and darkest days of the season. So when I saw a little mention of this by my friend Cynthia Jobin, well I couldn’t resist the urge to surprise her!
#14 Forythia’s in Winter is an oil pastel (10×8) painted on a prepared gesso hardboard, starting with an acrylic underpainting first and after it dried two coats of “clear” gesso was applied to give the surface tooth. Click onto the image for a larger view ~
Hope you enjoy Cynthia, especially now that Spring has arrived in your neck of the woods!
