Purple Poppies Ochre Sky 16 x 20 Inch Oil Painting

More poppies from this week while on the yellow ochre sky kick. 


Rose Buds for the Kitchen 11 x 14 inch Oil Painting

Out with the old…in with the rose buds.  A bakers dozen!  This is the first painting where I used a painting knife on such a small canvas for more than just the background or blending or larger sweeps.  It was not easy.  I only had  larger knives.  Larger than the flowers so I had to finagle and make due.  After this painting, I took the opportunity to buy me a bunch of knives in lots of shapes and sizes.  The next time should go much smoother.
