Painting Irises – Day 10

Paint them before they die!

This was an easier decision today — My irises were starting to wilt, so I’m painting them!!!

I’m learning more and more every day about palette knife painting.  This one I used all alkyd paints. It takes so long for normal oils to dry, especially when I’m laying on so much paint.  Alkyds dry much more quickly.

I’m also giving myself permission not to totally delineate everything.  I like looser paintings.  With the knife I can’t get too precise.  


Day 10! Thanks for looking at my painting !!
