Farmers market

6 x 6 

Oil on Canvas 

 This is this week's DPW's challenge: We had a picture as inspiration and I chose to crop it a lot to keep only the flowers in my painting.  I had fun mixing the colours.  I used only primary colours.. So NO green from a tube, or oranges or purples! Only Red, Blue and Yellow and of corse white! That is how I started painting... I actually did my first big paintings like this because I had only a few tubes in my starters set and no money to buy more.. well no money for that at 20 years old ;)
Then I became a bit lazy and I bought all the colours in tubes... but this is so much better! The colours are so much more real.  It's nice to go back to basic sometimes!
