playing with abstract geraniums 14

Mona Pendleton | Wednesday, February 17, 2016 @ 4:44 PM | , , , ,

Hi there! I had the day off from work so I had fun playing with some oil paints! It's week 4 of a 6 week online painting workshop that I'm currently taking with one of my favorite artists Dreama Tolle Perry. This week we are painting a chair with a pot of geraniums perched in / on it.
Here's my first attempt on a 9" x 11" canvas board. I got a wee bit carried away with all the shades of reds and pinks! LOL
One of the many things I'm learning in the course, is how to be "loose" with the brush, not painting in uniformity and embracing abstract paint brush strokes. I'm going to paint this again and again until I'm satisfied with the final outcome where I can proudly hang it in my studio :)

I'm linking this up with Paint Party Friday:
Thanks so much for stopping by ~ I hope you have a great day / evening!
Be Sweet ;)
