Late winter flowers


The deep red of these sunflowers was wonderful to paint. This was painted alla prima which has been my method for a couple of years now. Currently I'm learning the indirect methods of the old masters, the flemish and venetian styles. It requires quite a bit of patience as there are many layers to each painting. With this new knowledge I'm impatient to start experimenting to see how the glazing can be used in combination with the direct method. Could be very interesting...
