This Original Pelargonium flower – floral oil painting, was painted using the traditional Grisaille method of the Old Masters.This oil painting is based on flowers growing in my own front yard.
The Old Masters style of Grisaille of a toned under-painting followed by applying many layers of Transparent Colour, finally gives a glow to the finished painting, that modern techniques cannot recreate. This technique is a very long and tedious process, it takes many hours to complete a finished oil painting. The Floral Oil Painting below, took me close to 40 hours of my time to complete.
