Painting a white flower has always been a goal I wanted to achieve. But doing so is an elusive task.The under-petals have distinct shadows of their own and the white I sought to paint hardly exists as the petals reflect every surrounding hue.The petals of a peony riot with the slightest movement. And while I've signed the piece, I am keeping that brush handy for a last minute flourish.
'Love Me Tender' 24 X 24 X 3/4" oil on canvas.
If you know someone who might be interested in this piece, please forward this to them.
Please send me your thoughts on this painting please, I'm somewhat isolated by Covid and the cold weather.
