Red Geraniums

I got a bonus couple of hours today to paint in my backyard.  This is a 2 hour alla prima painting.  I used four colors (vermilion, ultramarine blue, titanium white and cad yellow medium-all Lukas 1862 brand) plus Gamblin’s Asphaltum.  Asphaltum is a mixture of Mars Red and Bone Black.  I learned about it from Sadie Valeri‘s blog. It makes wonderful darks. This painting is oil on panel and measures 10×10.
