A gorgeous bouquet of flowers for my next painting – can you name them?
Today I taught an oil pastel workshop and want to thank Rita (Blogger) from newyorknorthfineart (amazing pastel work) for her encouragement. It went really well. I had some cheap pastels and then tried the beautiful Sennelier thinking there was nothing in between. I discovered a beautiful cheap ‘fresh’ brand that worked really well. My old cheapies were just too dry and too old to blend. I am so eager to start my next painting but have to wait for underpainting to dry. Just out of the studio shot is a page of little Morandi images (no flowers) full of restraint – it is there to remind me to keep it simple.
I’m hopeless at naming flowers. The yellow are little orchids I think, there is a grevillia, a marigold, some really tight pink roses and something that looks like a berry etc. I asked for something earthy so I got the little branches. See, I told you I was hopeless with names of flowers.
