"Black-Eyed Susan" 6x9

Oil on Panel 6"x 9"
SOLD

Last year I planted this vine in my garden. It was very pretty but got way out of control. At the end of the season I pulled it out -- to my surprise this summer it reappeared in full force.

This orange Black Eyed Susan Vine is one of my favorite flowers. Here in Idaho, I struggle to keep them alive.....

Love the painting!

M, another great piece. May I ask what colors you use to create your greens? I love the range of values and the "life" they exude. It's always a pleasure. Best wishes.

Do you know the name of the vine? I LOVE the punch of those yellows against the background and "white" of the bowl. So beautiful on canvas even if it is a nuisance in the garden!

Hey John -- I usually have between 20 to 25 colors on my palette. For the greens I used a combination of cerulean blue, magenta, viridian, sap green, alizarin, cad yellow, cinnabar and cad orange. Now that I have listed them that seems like a lot of colors but there are some subtle variation in this painting that seemed have demanded that many.
