Violet 04 (Viola sororia)
(acrylic and charcoal on muslin)
We have a new sign of Spring here in North Georgia, the Oaks and Pines are blooming so everything is getting their yearly coating of pollen turning to a nice bright yellow.
notes, quotes and tips
Now that I’ve done several of these small plant portraits of violets it is time to move up in size. Eventually I’l work up to at least 24×18 but for for now I want to work in a 12×9 format. I’ve been able to explore some ideas with the flowers and how I want to handle the background, now I want to explore some ideas with composition using the same proportions as the planned painting.
