"YELLOW ROSES & BONNARD"by Alicia Tredway


I borrow this vase from time to time. It's like Bonnard used in many of his beautiful Interiors and it can certainly get me going. It's actually not a vase but a little pot with a lid and hot chocolate was served in the Gilded Age no doubt. I wasn't sure where I was going with this painting so used a slow dry medium to keep the paints open longer.  Also thick paint...thick yellow paint (notoriously slow dryer) might mean longer dry time for sure.  To learn more or to bid on eBay CLICK HERE
