Forsythia Study Collection
Its' Spring. We have wonderful sunshine and gorgeous flowers are appearing in our cottage garden. Near my studio are two wonderful Forsythia. My eyes have kept wandering to their glorious display of colour this week. They are irresistable! I always give myself a treat at the end of each working session, to paint something new whilst exploring the creative possibilities of differing approaches.
So now, I am now enjoying painting wonderful yellow flowers. Falling on my Asian training with my rigger for the brushwork forming branches and using my number ten brush for the yellow petals.
These pieces have a delightful sense of warmth, sunshine, and peace about them and they have certainly lifted my spirits as each has evolved during my experimental creative process.
I think my favourite is this piece.
Favourite Forsythia Study
Matching colour to my subject.
Each flower has such a short season of life, as artists we need to paint what we see and when we see it. Never missing the golden opporunity to create from life. And how golden this opportunity is!
