Rose of Sharon

This painting is 12' x 12' on a stretched canvas.  I have been wanting to work larger and also been wanting to paint this bloom from my garden.  I laid out a fairly detailed sketch in paint before I began to paint.  Next I chose my palette....Azo Yellow, Azo Coral, Alizarin Crimson, Quinacridone Magenta, Manganese Violet, Ultramarine Blue and Alizarin Crimson.  I pre mixed most of my colors and jumped in feet first with brush in hand.
