|LILACS & FIESTA|
I deeply admire the work of colorist Anne O’brien-Gonzales. I have her book; Bold Expressive Painting plus three of her painting demonstration DVD’s.
Her style speaks to me with its loose brush strokes, a bunch of color with a touch of mixed media whimsy.
I set up a still life with my Fiesta water pitcher, an old spice tin and fish salt and pepper shakers. The palette was complimentary with rice papers added for texture. The lilacs are out of my imagination.
I can almost smell the sweet scent of the lilac flowers.
