Thank you so much for my first painting lesson. I feel quite emotional, mostly because I regret that I didn’t do this decades ago! Well, there’s no time like the present…

The Flowers of Spring! Alla Prima Oil Demonstration: Daffodils

Alla Prima Oil Painting Demonstration in class: Daffodils

Spring has arrived and not a moment too soon. Cathy cut these flowers from our front garden because all I had in the studio were some tired-looking tulips and she insisted that I'd lose all my students if I used them as models! So, this demonstration took about 20 minutes and I took it to the blocking-in stage and no further.

Colours used (all Winsor & Newton): Titanium white; Cadmium Yellow Pale Hue; Permanent Rose; Cobalt Blue; Burnt Umber. I also had Ivory Black on the palette too, but I didn't use it at all this time.
