“Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen.” – Leonardo da Vinci
Splendid, an oil pastel (10×8) painted on cream tinted Mi-Teintes pastel paper using Senneliers, Holbeins and Mungyo-Gallery oil pastels. This was an interesting painting to develop, I was nearly done – when all of a sudden the background screamed “change me” (had to wait until the end, lol). So a few good scrapes with a razor took many layers of paint off and on came some darks to the lower right-hand side of the background of prussian blue, magenta and sap green – hopefully giving the flower what it needed to standout.
