Sunflower in Blue Jar
8"x8" oil NFS
This painting is from week 3 of the online painting class I am taking from Dreama Tolle Perry. She paints vibrant transparent colors in values deeper than the final product, and then layers opaques over them. If you can manage to keep your brush really clean, the final result is quite lovely with intense colors that "sing." It is really a fun process and lends itself well to little still life paintings like this, or lovely French doorways, arches and lots of flowers. I am attempting to apply it to figurative work and have had mixed success which I will share later this week.
