Old Washington Paint Group – Larkspur

Todays model for our paint group in Old Washington was an old watering can with Larkspur. It’s always fun to paint with a group–not just for the company and feedback, but also to see how each artist interprets the subject.

For this painting, i tried something a little bit different: compressing the values, and only using 3 colors: prussian blue, quinacridone magenta and cadmium yellow light + titanium white. I’m really happy with how it turned out!

This is painted from life and direct observation: no cameras, transfers, computers, ai–I think it would qualify to go in my ‘plein air’ gallery. Will decide once it’s dry and framed 🙂
