My first painting since completing the Morristown series, I needed a change from urban landscape and found these white hydrangeas and red & white tulips to be just what I needed for a diversion. These were painted in one session directly from life. Began with a burnt umber underpainting and worked the color in directly on top alla prima. Palette = cobalt, king’s blue, prussian blue, alizarin, cadmium red light, yellow ochre, cadmium barium yellow, titanium white, burnt umber and burnt sienna. If this dries on time (by Thursday), I will enter it into the First Annual Sylvia Maria Glesmann Flower exhibit at the Salmagundi Club.
