White Pansy Study 3, 6x8, Oil on Canvas, Click to Bid
One last pansy study before the full size painting.
The one thing that I keep focusing on is "is it in the light or shadow". I've read and studied that the darks in the light should be lighter than the lights in the shadow. This is a fairly interesting opportunity to practice that concept because of the twists and turns in the petals which contain both white and deep purple.
After opening the image in photoshop I did some playing with the paintbrush tool and I believe I am improving in that area. Improving but not mastered.. I still have a lot to learn but that's what it's all about right? :)
