1730 Sunny Impatiens, Plein Air Alla Prima
Painted this the other day at Heathcote Botanical Gardens, these impatiens were glowing in the sun. I had a lot of fun painting with my friend Betty. We had left our orange paint at home, I remembered I had pink opera paint and gave her some. It makes a super orange when mixed with yellow. With these flowers here I needed a cool red like alizarin crimson, I had left mine at home and she gave me some of hers.
The painting is 5 x 7 inches, oil on masonite.
