Artist's description:

My new garden has brought a wealth of unique and beautiful plants. These gladiolus were a particular surprise that I found irresistible. This original oil painting is on archival linen, which emphasizes the glorious luminosity of the paints.

My painting process is to first layer in a warm color, like burnt sienna, onto white linen canvas. With that thin layer still wet, I wipe out the lightest areas, which later provides luminosity and usually is enough to define the shapes. Next, I apply the lightest and then darkest areas, which helps to establish the values and colors. Finally middle tones and more detailed areas are applied, always looking to harmonize the colors, refine the drawing and focus on the center of interest.

This painting is ready to be framed.
