"Pink Ladies"

10"x 7" oil on canvas. Available.

These little perfect camellias from Clarence's yard are just the right size for my 3" tall vase. I keep grandma's vase in my kitchen window, even without flowers, just to see the light shine through it. I think it is one of my loveliest possessions and just right for these "pink ladies".
I began with a pencil sketch to establish the correct shape and proportions. In step 2, I show the blocking in of the major color shapes, working on getting values right. This painting was done in one session and took about four hours to complete.
