Longwood Garden's Orchids. Oil Pastel WIP.

"Longwood Garden's Orchids"
Oil Pastel 14 x 11" WIP.
While I let my oil  painting to sit around and dry, this is another project. Framed size of painting going to be 20 x 16", but painting is an only 14 x 11'. I'm going to do several floral works after out visit at Longwood Gardens earlier this spring. This is a photo what I'm going to use for my first reference.
 It was significantly modified from it's original version and I'm pretty happy with it now.
 It took me about two evening to work on my drawing and then I transfered it to the board. Now, starting from the top, I'm carefully erasing outlined of my drawing and filling it up with color using some watercolor pencils. It is exactly the same process i used when i painted "Iris Garden". After I'll be done with pencils, I'm going to turn drawing into watercolor underpainting, because it works much better as underpainting for Oil Pastels compare to pencils. When it will be done the most fun part will be ready to start.  I'm not sure how much time it would take to accomplish - for the simple reason, I have more then one painting in progress and I'm giving my priority to Oil painting first. So all depends. Mean while, this one is progressing .

"Orchids in a ruby glass". Oil. Update #2.

"Orchids in Ruby Glass" Oil 12 x 12" WIP.

I didn't paint mush lately, because was too busy with other things... and today it is a perfect day to paint in - weather is miserable and I simply do not feel like emerging to the house-work. Therefore I paint and maybe will even have something accomplished. Still working just with two color, what are no colors, but value scale. It is getting more interesting. I just have to keep in mind I decided to stay away of Oil Pastels this time... I have another orchid painting for Oil pastels in my mind... gorgeous idea (hopefully will be gorgeous painting too!). But with 3 started painting I better have something finished first before trying out anything new... even if it is gorgeous.

"Orchids in Ruby Glass" Oil 12 x 12" WIP.

"Orchids in Ruby Glass" Oil 12 x 12" WIP.

I have my own reasons why I had to put my pastel painting on hold... just temporarily and start this oil painting Instead. Same picture, different medium. More slow process and more time to think about it all. I'm working on Ampersand 12x12 Gessobord with no other primers, but factory gesso (what I love, BTW!). Beginning stage will be total gray scale. no color, just value underpainting. I'm continue to use my DUO Oils with some Liquin. Not much done for one day, but what done is done. The hardest part about this painting will be to keep those Oil Pastels in the box. This has to be an Oil. Not an Oil Pastel!... (Temptations, temptations!..)

"Orchids in Ruby Glass" Pastel 11 x 11" WIP.

"Orchids in Ruby Glass" Pastel 11 x 11" WIP.

Latest project. few evenings of playing with camera and thinking of another Still life... or two.
And I think this is going to to be the ONE. Flat Ruby-glass bowel on a dark wood with some floating orchids.
Lot of time for photo-shoot, lot of time with Photoshop and now I'm down to dilemma what I'm going to do about drawing part. Flowers are not hard to draw, but i have not easy geometric pattern  with all reflections on the bowel... So this time I'll have to do drawing with the greed, I like it, or not. I'm going to draw on my support, hopefully without any additional image transferring involved.  Mid-gray PastelMat, off white pastel pencil. maybe tomorrow I'll have a chance to start with some color too.
