Plumbago y Lila

The classes at the Institute of Bellas Artes have come to an end for the second semester and will start again in September. After the show last month, I have worked some much smaller pieces and have been working on my oil still life over grisaille. That one I have finally finished and will hope to post on my other blog this week. I have also been working on a big Mixed Media piece that I hope to post on this blog as soon as it is finished.

I had never worked with this color palette before and found it quite pleasing.

Oil on MDF board. 12X12 inches



It's very interesting, Mary,,,and quite floral feeling.
Great palette,,,not one I'm normally attracted to use myself, but as you say,,,it IS very pleasing!

i thought "IT'S A GARDEN!" when i first saw this, Mary. i think it's a wonderful departure from your usual style, which BTW, has been ever changing lately. it's great to see you exploring new territory. i think this one is a big hit!*thumbsup*

Babs, thank you for feeling the flowers that was why the title in Spanish of plumbago. It was the first thing that came into my mind.

Billie thank you for the comment, I felt much more comfortable with this one and it went faster. Using the knife is so new to me but I am beginning to like it.
