Day 19 Hydrangea Blue

Day 19 Hydrangea Blue
 I love hydrangeas.
They have such rich vibrant colors.
Pinks, blues, purples, and even greens.

They look so lovely together.

I've seen several similar paintings in the challenge like this,
that I thought I'd give it a try as a learning exercise.
I used water mixable oils and a palette knife.

I love the colors in this painting.

6" x 6" water mixable oil on a panel

$50 + $6 shipping

Because this is oil paint, it will take up to six weeks to dry before it can be shipped.


  1. Sharon, I tried to comment on this and my connection failed, so if this is a double, please just post one of the comments! Anyhow, I said something along the lines of...what are you doing with oils, besides making luscious paintings?! It is fun to see you trying new things, and I hope you are enjoying yourself...!

  2. These are my water mixable oils and I have four days full of flowers either already posted or on the way. I'm several days ahead. They are fun to play in. I don't know what I'm doing but having fun so that is all good.

    1. Several days ahead????? You must be having fun!

  3. I am having fun, but I'm also trying to get ahead before the wedding this weekend and my show next weekend.

  4. The painting is so beautiful with the colors you chose.
    Why would it take so long to dry, Sharon? 6 weeks? The surface should dry to the touch long before that. I did have a magenta once which took forever to dry. I removed it from my palette. Best if they all dry at similar rate.
    Wedding and a show. Wow!
    You will have a marvelous time with both.

    1. I don't know why it takes so long to dry. I'm hedging my bets that in six weeks it will travel with no issue, but it seems to take a good while to dry. Maybe I use toooooo much paint on these. The ones I did in Dreama's class a year ago took a good six weeks to dry.
