View Full Version : Fast and Furious

Is this a Budlea? I'm not a gardener. This shrub is some thirty feet away from my window. This is a sort of hang it all and paint fast, get out of the rut, don't worry what happens sort of thing. It took about 15 minutes.
I'llmaybe put in some lighter leaves mixed from Ceruleanm and Naples Yellow Light.
Sorry it's a bad flash photo, but if I do decide to do some more to this it will obviously have changed.
Oils on 9 x 12 inch canvas, over a previous painting.

Thanks Kim. I admit to having usually slowed down a bit with oils. I used to work fast with acrylics in order to work the paint still wet. I didn't like retarder aand that didn't retard that much anyway.

Mikey definitely not a buddleia - any chance of ref shot?
Looking forward to update.

Hi Lisa, this is a laugh. I once went on one of these schemes were we had to tick or comment besides listed abilities. When I came to organisation I wrote "Don't even think about it."
