Small painting of fuschia

This is yet another of my recent small works.
I keep photographs of many things I see in life and
on such occasions as painting a whole series of small
works, I get them out and go for it!
I enjoy the use of complementary colors such as
the orange-blue combination you see here.
This is 5" x 7" on a panel and is an alkyd painting.
Now thatI am down to the wire on time, I
incorporate the use of alkyd paint. It dries much
faster than oil because of the medium used to
make the paint. But in all other respects it is the
same as oil paint.
