French Lilacs oil painting

Beautiful and very fragrant, French Lilacs are a favorite! An oil painting can keep the memory of these lovely flowers blooming all year.

Was this one painted with only the three colors? The purples seem more vibrant than in your other paintings.

No, I am only using the single primary palette of three colors right now with watercolors and this one is an oil painting.

With oils I'm using a DOUBLE primary palette instead of a single. This means a cool and a warm of each of the three primary colors - so six colors rather than three. Great question - you are very observant! :)

*chuckles* Thanks! I love art and I'm always trying to improve my own.

A cool and a warm of each color ... that would give you a more vibrant palette, all right! You're making me want to go paint some still lifes.
