Re: Begonias Final- Oil

It reminds me of Richard Schmid's work (this is a big compliment) although your style is a bit different than his. I really love it. The use of color/value is perfect. Bravo!

Re: Begonias Final- Oil

Hi Annie- Many paint directly with this method, and Schmid is the master of them all. My goal is, as he has said, to 'paint with paint'- it's a great concept he was taught. Thanks for the very nice compliment!

Re: Begonias Final- Oil

It is always difficult to know when your done. Understatement is pretty safe place in my opinion.

Very much beautiful painting. I especially like the leaves because I still can't paint them.

Re: Begonias Final- Oil

Hi Nancy- I didn't arrange things too much but moved slowly through. I am learning more to go with what can be discovered. It's great fun to use this kind of color- Thanks so much!

Re: Begonias Final- Oil

Interesting that a painting with such small value range can have such rich color variety. Nice soft brushwork, not overdone.

Thanks Alison! Work from life gives you so much more to work with. I appreciate it- working toward a more painterly approach.
