"Bourgeon De Rose." 24"x28", Oil on Canvas, 2010.
This one took me probably 2 months off and on. The painting technique was more traditional than a lot of the other ones I have done. I started with a burnt umber underpainting and worked up color layers from a fully rendered monochromatic piece. I was influenced by the posts on Matthew Innis' blog about the academic ebauche. I can't find a whole lot more about the technique other than his research so if anyone can direct me to any more info that would be awesome.
If anyone is wondering how the "Painted Roses" prints from Inprnt.com look, you're not alone. I also had to see how they looked, so I ordered a couple of prints for myself.
This one is the 12"x18" print of Ivory Fashion. You can see the border around it.
Gotta give the folks at inprnt.com props! I'm happy with the way they look. If you're an artist that has the opportunity to sell your work with them, take 'em up on it!
