Smoke Bush

Luscious strokes of  branches of smoke bush in a vase.
Great to play with all the darks. They were so intense but 
still need to be given life with some cad red light.
Along with Alizarin  I used Chromatic black.
Every edge one can imagine.
It was so much fun to do.

Back at it!

I am happily back at it after foot surgery.

Above you see a study of iris and a rose.
I worked on color and making them all relate to each other.
We are really exploring color in class.

After the study we were to do a quick painting.
I had 20 minutes and created this little work.
It is fresh and lively.
