Hyacinth, oil on board, 5"x7", complete
This is an indirect oil painted on hardboard. The indirect method begins with a grisaille followed by opaque veils of color. This particular study was a labor of love, and its challenge was to convey the form of the hyacinth blossoms within a very tight range of hue and value.
I'm donating this painting to "Art and Soul," a fundraiser on 19 March 2016 at Warehouse XI that hopes to raise money for creative arts programming at the Benjamin Brown School in Somerville.
