100 Garden & Flower Oil Paintings - 31/100
Day 3 of Michael Klein's workshop was spent on one still life. Because this was not enough time to complete one, I chose to focus in on the main gladiola bloom and lightly block in the rest of the flowers.
His palette includes: Titanium white, Raw sienna light, Yellow ochre pale, Cad yellow pale, Cad orange, Cad red deep, Burnt sienna, Alizaron crimson, Raw umber, Burnt umber, Cobalt blue, Ultramarine, blue, Ivory black, Cobalt violet and Viridian green. This is a much different palette than I'm used to, making it a great challenge. Many of these colors I'd never used; he uses Cobalt violet only for mixing, not for flower colors.
One evening we went to the Broadway show Jersey Boys. The show, recommended by blogger friend Carol Schiff, was wonderful. I lived in New Jersey from 1964 - 1970 so I knew every song they sang!
