Winter Holly - Daily Study # 2 by Pamela Blaies

8" x 10"

I did this study yesterday using some holly with berries I found in my yard. I focused on being selective in my edges, making abstract shapes on my canvas, instead of painting "leaves." I enjoyed painting free strokes with a brush and adding some texture and sharp edges with the knife. The effect of the teacup in this composition makes the holly seem to dance around in a circle.

I love to share my art and inspiration. Click HERE to sign up for my email newsletter and receive a free gift of postcards.
