Chive Blossoms by Susie Morrell

6" x 6" oil on archival linen panel

private collection

I was going through my paints and wanted to paint these chive blossoms (photo courtesy of Joey Randall's Village Voice blog) I use a very limited palette but was having difficulty achieve the hue of the blossoms so turned to my kit and found a wonderful tube of Gamblin's Manganese Violet. Perfect!  Thanks to Dot Bunn for encouraging me to purchase it! This one is now in a private collection.  I loved painting it so may paint another version!

  1. Joey Randall's photos are beautiful and I think you could paint each one and have a winner! God' beauty captured by Joey and your painting talent is a wonderful combo.
