Nurtured Indoors - Study 3

Nurtured Indoors - Study 3

During this long period of being shut in, I have tried to stay positive and view this as a time for me to nurture myself and my family.  One of the things I have nurtured is returning to media that I have not had the opportunity to use for many years.  After I started my family, I lacked the time or space to oil paint.  Nurtured Indoors is a small series of houseplants that signal my return to oil painting.  This collection features houseplants in vivid greens and warm sunny orange tones.

 

Study 3 is a close up of an aloe or agave plant.  This one was a chanllenge to build the layers of color and find contrast within a multitude of green tones.  I used various brush strokes to create subtle textures on the leaves.  Study 3 was painted on a 8 by 10 stretched canvas as is ready to hang in your home or office.
