Pansy Time #4

Pansy Time #4

8x6in oil on canvas board 100.

Continuing the Pansy Series.

This time I placed them in colorful vases which competed for attention.
A purely decorative and fun piece to do.

  1. This is so pretty, Julie! I love your painterly brushwork. Well done!

  2. VERY beautiful! makes me think Sping is on it's way

  3. Very colorful! Feels very happy too! Love all the energy.

  4. Your pansy series is wonderful. Really beautiful painterly pieces. Lovely.
    Have a wonderful weekend.

  5. I love the evolution of your pansy series -- from a more classic composition to more modern, patterned look to this one, the play of colored fields. I especially like the knife work of the third in the series -- very energetic and playful.

    Thanks for sharing the tip of double loading with the chiseled brush -- funny that I was taught to do the same in watercolor! Never thought of using it for smooth blending in oil, and I tried it -- it worked! Thanks again. So much for me to learn...
