Blue Pansies painted wet-on-wet on a dark background using Oil paint.

pansy flowers painted in oils wet-on-wet

These Blue Pansies are painted using Oil paint, wet on wet and on a gesso-ed canvas.

The background is a dark navy blue gesso, applied with light even strokes, this was allowed to dry before the painting was started.

Only a thin layer of Zest-it Clear Painting Medium was used to 'wet' the canvas, apply with a brush and wipe off the excess.
The leaves were painted first followed by the flowers 'stacked' on top of each other.
Various shades of blue were used, each Pansy flower having a different coloured centre and facing a different direction./b>

This workshop painting is good exercise in painting the many ruffled petals that give Pansies their shape and form.
