“Fuchsias I”

"Fuchsias"

“Fuchsias I”, oil on gallery panel, 18″x24″.  Completed July 2010

 

I really struggled to get the vividness of the backlit petals.  It seemed that no pure color I owned was bright enough!  Ultimately, I rediscovered the benefits of oil-glazing, a technique I had not used for many years.
