Hi Hydrangea 6" x 6" Oil on Linen - Available here
In the winter the days are so short. It is a good time to go back to the studio to paint still life. This one was a lot of fun to set up and fun to paint! That said, I'm trying to work more in my sketchbook, setting up the blocks of value and sticking with them, to get a sense of light in my paintings.

Patricia Butler loves to paint. Living and working in Austin, Texas, she is drawn to the beauty around her and the challenge of capturing the essence of the scene before her. She counts herself very blessed to be living in Austin, which is a vibrant, growing city, and, with its multitude of lovely parks and nearby lakes and hill country, it presents endless inspiration. She is a founding member of Plein Air Austin, and enjoys painting with the group any chance she gets.
