All of the paintings in the Flower Gallery were painted with traditional Oil paint, Zest-it Clear Painting Medium and Zest-it Oil Paint Dilutant and Brush Cleaner was used to thin the paint and clean the  brushes.
Some are painted wet-on-wet, others more traditional, some have step-by-step instructions, all using mainly flat brushes of sable and synthetic mix, also varying sized riggers.
Most of the flower paintings have details of the techniques, paint colours and mediums used alongside,
 also showing contrasting, monochrome, warm and cool colours from the colour wheel.

 There are also flower paintings in the Tole Gallery and the Gallery's on my personal site.
