ABOUT THIS PICTURE
18″ x 24″ oil on canvas. After attending a Van Gogh exhibition in San Francisco (if you ever get a chance to see his work, run, leap, fly out of your house and go see it) I got interested in impressionism. As the old masters used oils, I gave it a try! I love the buttery, smooth texture, and the blending properties of oil. This painting was a lot of fun because I also got to use a quick-drying product Liquin which enabled me to extend and further blend colors, with the added benefit speeding up the drying time. I love the thick impasto flowers. I really enjoyed giving this picture some texture and some pop-out effect.
