Cherry Blossoms

Another Alla-prima in oils. It took about 40 minutes to complete. I think the only way that I can stop myself from overdoing a piece in oils is to finish it in one go!...
I always wanted to paint white flowers...these cherry blossoms were an obvious choice!I have used a bit of knife on petals, for creating light.
Oil on canvas board, 8"x10"

  17. Hello Arti,
    Saw you got tagged too by Crystal Cook and thought I'd come check out your blog. I like what you do. Nice blog. I laughed when I read what you wrote about the painting of your nephew. I seem to make people look older than they are. I tell them I'm psychic and predicting what they will look like in the future, which doesn't always go over well with them but it makes me laugh. Hope you stop by my blog, too. Enjoy your weekend.
