Oil 12x16

Here is the finished oil sketch 12 x 16.  I have let alot of the block in show through as I felt I didn’t need to over work this little painting.  I wanted to keep it looking fresh.

This painting was inspired last summer from my garden.  It was the first year I had planted hollyhocks and delphiniums and I was delighted with the results.  I used ‘artists licence’ in the background,

making the landscape flow over an endless horizon. I think I captured the splash of colour these beautiful flowers displayed.  This will be exhibited at the forthcoming Melbourne Society of Women Painters & Sculptors – Opening Night Thursday,

1st August, 2013 at the Victorian Artists Society, 430 Albert Street, East Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.
