Holly




7"X5" Oil on board

It is hard to find good holly here. This is imported from Oregon, so it tends to be a bit flat when it arrives and half the berries are squashed.


I am not sure what I was trying to achieve with this one. I always find foliage a challenge to paint in oil, especially dark, glossy foliage, and I was painting this in artificial light in the end which is always a mistake for me.
