Geraniums Painted wet-on-wet using oil paint.

geranium flower

Oil painting wet-on-wet on 20" x 16" canvas.

These Geraniums are painted with various tones of red and are therefore classed as from the warm side of the colour wheel.

The leaves being tones of green are classed as from the cool side of the colour wheel.

Red and Green are contrasting/complimentary colours.

The primed canvas was first covered with a thin layer of Zest-it Clear Painting Medium, this allows you to work
wet-on-wet , the medium was also mixed with the oil paint throughout. To this wetted background areas of oil
colour were applied the same as the image, these were brushed in and blended.

The red of the flowers and the green of the leaves give the painting vibrancy, against the muted background.

Wet-on-wet flower painting for you to try Amaryllis  and Hibiscus both are step by step.
