I’m experimenting with beginning a painting from reality and allowing it to veer off in another direction while still painting en plein air.

Inspired by the Buddleia Bush

I enjoy playing with the positive and negative shapes when dealing with the complicated overlapping of leaves and branches.  It is a wonderful opportunity to be inventive with color.

Buddleia Bush Number Two is posted on my other blog, Third Time Around.

Color Palette: Cadmium Yellow Pale, Raw Sienna, Vermillion, Alizarin Crimson, Cerulean Blue, Peacock Blue, Thalo Blue, Viridian.
