Spring Lilacs


 
 
Backyard Lilacs   16" x 20"   O/C
 
At this time each spring , the lilacs are in full bloom. It has become a ritual to paint a bouquet of lilacs at this time each year. This year will be the same ! ! 
 
The canvas that I painted on had a acrylic under painting of  alizarin crimson and gray, rather loosely rubbed together with a rag to cover the canvas. I used my limited palette for this painting but added chromium oxide green and raw sienna.
 
I do not usually do a still life of this nature so it is my pleasure to carry on with this spring ritual
 
..'til next
