Textured Spring Flowers 18 x 18 Inch Oil Painting Palette Knife

This is an 18 x 18 inch oil painting of a very pretty spring garden.  I do love this one.  It is a nice texture and the clouds are fun fun fun!  I seem to be in the “girl” tones this month.  This is what happened.  Deb Riley had a post about using Ultramarine blue and Naples yellow in a color palette and now I’m a little bit addicted.  It gives a softer look to my mixed colors.  I’m definitely not saying I don’t like my bright obnoxious usual colors.  I love them, but girly pinks and purples are a nice change for spring.

    1. Thank you so much. 😀 Lots of thick paint, one sitting, don’t overwork the paint…very enjoyable process to work out.


    1. I get so confused about still life. Would this be considered still life? Seems a bit close up for landscape? Is it an outdoor still life unless it is windy? 😊thank you!

      1. As I have no real background in art, only what I think I know (ha!) – I always thought of still lifes as an indoor composition of objects. I found this definition online: “a painting or drawing of an arrangement of objects, typically including fruit and flowers and objects contrasting with these in texture, such as bowls and glassware.”

    1. Thank you Jo. Can’t wait till this cast is off. I’m interested to see how I would do something like this with an unobstructed flipper! With the cast, I get tired a a lot sooner so my mindset is basically just lay the paint down and no use changing my mind and scraping it off it I don’t like it because I can’t right now anyway. I feel less stressed though, which is weird. I’ve kinda given myself the go ahead to just let the painting be what it is. Sometimes it works, sometimes not.
