As preparation for the Rogers Garden Day of Art I am painting around the house . I love gardens and flowers as well as the sea. This is a little plein air sketch of my geranium garden . (9"x12" oil on linen) It is pretty loose compared to the orchid that I painted from a photograph below. (6"x 8" oil on canvas panel.) I used a simple palette of red, yellow, and green for these. You can see more garden on this website .
At this time of the year , when it is raining I go inside and try new color harmonies. Just like musicians, artists need to constantly try new melodies that please the eye. These are from a photos of sunflower fields that I took while painting in France. I used only three colors to paint these.
