Thanks for all the great photos, Helen!
Decided on the Iris floral. It's oil on 7x5 archival canvas panel.
Once again, as I did last week, toward the last of the painting, I used the brush much like a painting knife. Load a gob of under mixed paint and slide it unto the canvas with one swipe...go back and re load. Makes for good texture and paint mix surprises.
C&C welcome. Thanks for looking. :)
Done at around 2 hrs.

I don't understand your new technique - it must be an oil painter thing! And that I am not...well, whatever it is you're doing PLEASE keep doing it cuz it's gorg-a-licious!

Thanks Robert, Wendy, Mary Jane, and Kay...I appreciate your kind comments.

It's how I manipulate the paint from the palette to the surface of the canvas.
I used the brush much like a painting knife. Load a gob of under mixed paint and slide it unto the canvas with one swipe...go back and re load. Makes for good texture and paint mix surprises.
Best wishes, Deano
