A few months ago, my husband's cousin wrote and asked if I could do a painting for his wife. She wanted a painting of Punctatum (aka wild azalea) for their foyer. She preferred oil and wanted it to be a generous size, 24" x 36". I've worked in a few different mediums, primarily watercolor and acrylic and have played around in oils a bit as well but it's not exactly my comfort zone.
However... this is about the sweetest couple you could ever meet and I'd try about anything for them! So I did it!
NOW... I want to do this same subject using brilliant watercolors and see how that turns out! That way, they can take their pick!
Until next time!
