5"x7" oil on archival paper
This painting came from a challenge the art group I am in decided to do. We voted on a group of photos and the geraniums were the winner (I didn't vote for geraniums). So I decided to do it abstractly, experiment with shapes and tools and to do it on a surface I have been wondering about, archival watercolor paper. I prepped the front of the paper with acrylic medium and later decided to do the back side too, then painted with oils on it. I love the results. I used a variety of mixed reds that don't show their subtle differences so well in the photo I took, but it is rich and fun.
