Lucid Lavender

This is my version of a beautiful, lavender orchid.  This is an oil painting that is 16" x 20" painted on Linen Canvas.  As usual, I begin by painting a complete, and detailed grisaille (gray) underpainting, over which I then glaze many layers of color.

About William F. Martin

I am a retired lithographer (color separator)..  I have a BS degree in industrial education, and have taught part-time, while working in the litho trade.  One of my finest teaching experiences was that of having taught a course in color theory and application, at AZ State University for 4 years.  I've been painting in oils for about 25 years, and in watercolor for a bit less time.  I belong to an art club, here in Glendale, AZ, as well as several other art forums.  I am presently teaching an adult class in oil painting at a local recreation center.
