Here we go again - will I never learn!

30 paintings in 30 day challenge Collage of all 30 paintings What was I thinking! I've signed up for another of Leslie Saeta's 30 paintings in 30 days challenge. I probably won't complete 30 paintings, as my family visitors are here until the 9th September. If I'm lucky I might be able to cheat and paint a couple over the next two days when they are all staying in our holiday apartment in Nice. I have not been painting much this year as my father was ill and passed away in February and I have been organising the probate, add that to never having time in the summer anyway and I now feel I need a kick to get started again.

Working Loose on Peonies, Bowl of Beauties

Bowl of Beauties floral still life by Marion Hedger Peony oil painting 20x20cm deep box canvas (1.5inch) Edges painted purple Painted with a palette knife. SOLD CONTACT ME to commission a similar piece  Soft Edges
Obtaining soft edges with a palette knife is difficult, so I first painted the peonies followed by the background. Where I wanted soft edges, I swiped palette knife across the edge to soften it and mix the paint. Where necessary I added extra paint on the knife before swiping going from the petal into the background and sometimes vice versa.
