Demonstration - Ruby Geraniums

Ruby Geraniums oil 9"x 9"
This is a previous post and one which I've meant to develop into a larger painting. I am starting that larger work today and thought I would post the steps taken to develop the painting over the next 2 or 3 days.

This is the first step in this new work. Just a light wash in of warm tones, establishing the 2 basic value areas. It measures 20" sq. and is on a prepared panel that has been lightly sanded.

Step 2 is a light charcoal drawing to establish the big shapes

Step 3- a more vibrant wash in to establish the color scheme
more tomorrow...
Pin It
