When Scott Royston sets his sights on flowers for one of his still life
oil painting compositions, he isn’t drawn to tiny buds or small
bouquets but expressive flora in full bloom. For him, painting flowers
is a gradual process that starts with a rough sketch in his sketchbook
and toning his canvas with an earthy pigment to pick up the warm tones
of the flowers. His next steps make up an impromptu oil painting lesson
that I want to share with you.
