Actually it is very much out of my comfort zone.
Found these lovely Campanula hiding in a corner of the garden. I have a collection of vases in my studio, bought over the years for still life and love the colours and shape of this little vase.
Having set up I tried premixing my colours. Well I failed with my limited pallet so delved into my box of half used tubes . I think I tried every combo of blues, violets & pinks that I possess, could I get that elusive colour that nature has so beautifully made?? Could I heck as like.
Well, this is the best I could manage
Campanula oil on board 6" x 8"
I think I will have to revisit this subject again. I hate to be defeated. I'd better show you what I was really trying to acheive
The funny thing is, looking at the photograph, I can kind of see where I went wrong. Hopefully I'll get it right next time
