Pansy blossoms – botanical study

January 7th, 2010

Pansy Study
5 x 7 oil on canvas on panel

In the winter, not a lot of flowers are blooming in Southern California. Cool season bloomers include snapdragons, iceland poppies and pansies, which are predominately purple, violet and shades of yellow, cream and white. I enjoyed painting this loose collection of forms as a study to get familiar with the shapes using palette knife and brush.

I think this little picture would look nice in a small plein air frame, something like this:

  2. Marian, the primary blossom with the sharp edged petal was the main one – also the one to the left rear of it. I used the knife to apply paint in other areas also, then softened some of them with brush.

  3. Pansies are one of my favorite flowers – they are so cheerful and resilient. I really love this little painting of them.
