Hydrangeas Complete!

The build up on this was slow for a couple of reasons.
It's a rather large piece at 18" x 24" and of course the fine details.
It was important to bring in all the colors that characterize the Hydrangea blossom in late Autum.
This meant adding touches of magenta, pinks, violets, blues, greens and golds.
The branches are bare in spots and the leaves are beginning to fade.

Beginning with a carefully detailed drawing is something I always enjoy.
For this piece it was especially important as a map of sorts to follow through to completion.

This painting came from photos I took while walking around Cooperstown, NY 
on a bright and brisk morning in October.

Onto a new project!
Thanks for stopping by.

  1. Another AWESOME painting Carmella! It takes me to a magical, perfect world where I feel like Cinderella. Did you ever see that your name and hers are very similar? Happy creating, my friend!!
