Red Bud Blooming, New Contemporary Landscape Painting by Sheri Jones

Red Buds Blooming
10x8 oil on canvas

I continue my study of color in these small landscape paintings. Since it is time for the red bud trees to bloom I wanted to explore the color in the blooms. They look purple in the landscape, but when you get closer they take on a hot pick color. Or a mix of the two. I will keep practicing to produce that perfect combo.
I did post a video of the start of this painting. I continued to work on it and scraped most of the paint off and like this new look.
