Hydrangea Practice

 5 x 7 oil on gessobord

The title says it all!  I need major practice on flowers - something I love but have difficulty painting.  I get hung up on all those little petals :(   Two summers ago I bought what I thought was an "old fashioned" hydrangea bush but in reality it was some sort of miniature hydrangea and it only has pink blooms with tiny clusters closely knitted together.  I really wanted the older version that I remember from my childhood  that has blue, purple and pink all on the same bush!


  1. I think you handled painting these clusters very well and your glass jar is fabulous.

    1. Thanks Julie. I need a lot of practice though. I have looked all over town for the handle you use to make your scraper but all I can find are the snap in kind. I'm still looking!
