Oil Painting on 10″ x 12″ canvas
This little group of primroses caught my eye as they pushed there way upwards through some rocks covered with lichens.
The delicate blooms made a lovely contrast with the rocks.
I began by coating the canvas with a layer of chromatic black and built the picture from there using mainly brushes for the delicate flowers and the palette knife for the rocks and lichens which are heavily textured.
The painting is framed with a white frame with black edge .
In its frame it measures 15″ x 17″
