I am determined to paint a whole series of "Ghost" Florals this winter. I've become fascinated with monochromatic designs, probably because of my scratchboard work, and wanted to try this idea out in oil painting. Because this kind of work is more interesting with something going on in the background, I've been preparing mottled canvases and boards upon which to then paint in white.
Here is today's painting - first session. I really got into this one and stood at my easel for hours. My back is killing me. Time to go have supper and continue this another day.
