Purple Mist, Purple Irises, Palette Knife Painting Judy Mackey

"Purple Mist"
20" x  20", Oil on Board

Every now and then a flop turns out alright - like it was meant to be.  This painting is just that.  I'd painted a very thick iris painting - and yet - here and there there are bits of the lemony yellow undertoning showing through, especially in the top right hand.  I wanted it that way.  But the flowers and leaves I just could get the colors right.  It was turning much too dark for a light sky.  So I started to scrape.  The colors that remained on the canvas was starting to look right so I loaded up the palette and started over, however on several places I liked the way the streaks looked from the initial scraping so I laid down color and then used a rag to drag the paint.  

Though textured the effect of the dragging the paint makes this look like a watercolor and the colors remained soft.

This painting is available through the on-line gallery, Ugallery.  A painting of mine is also on their sister site - Paperwork in a limited edition print form - however you have the ability to choose the size of print you'd like. If you get a chance, please visit the two sites.
