I painted this flower by using my usual glazing method.  That involves painting a complete, detailed, accurate, gray underpainting first.  Over that I applied many thin, glaze layers of paint, until I achieve the colors that I want for the rose.

This composite of photos shows the stages of progress of this painting, from the drawing upon a lightly toned canvas, to the final glaze layer of color.

I had a lot of fun painting this piece.  I painted this on a RayMar Linen Panel, and I used a photo that my son had taken of an illuminated river boat.  Trying to be a bit more "painterly", I used thicker paint, a bit larger brush, and I tried to only suggest the finer details.

This is a 16" x 20" oil on linen panel.  

I really enjoy painting more impressionistic paintings of night cityscapes.  These RayMar Linen panels are wonderful surfaces upon which to apply oil paint.

I painted this because my other "sheep painting" met with such success.  However, this one got rejected in this year's Glendale Are Competition, at which the other sheep painting sold.  Stuff happens, as they say.
