Flower Painting

It’s not something I do very often, but I was asked to paint flowers for my last demo at Rickmansworth Art Club.

I used Jacksons/Two Rivers rough paper which, as an experiment, I prepared with a spray of acrylic varnish to make lifting paint easier. It worked, but at the cost of being unable to paint in layers.

Quite happy with the result; it came together really quickly and was almost finished within the first hour.

I used a very limited palette of Alizarin Crimson, Yellow Ochre, Ultramarine and a little Cobalt Blue.

  1. Thank you Listskopun. Are you Icelandic by any chance? I am taking a group of Icelanders to Catalunya in May for a workshop/painting holiday and there are a couple of places left. I also hope to run another class in Siglufjordur in September! Let me know if you are interested, or contact Art Travel (Iceland) vally@arttravel.is. I have a few YouTube videos but need to do more!!
