I sat down to do an impasto paint sketch, because they’re very relaxing. And Painter immediately crashed. I forgot how much it hates the impasto brushes.
So I squeaked by with the Oils > Wet Brush instead. Nice smeary colors without the impasto effect.
Hollyhocks have very thin, papery petals, and my reference photo had very crumpled petals. I was trying to indicate both the veiny texture of the petals, and their crumpled edges. I think this would be fun to paint in real media on a canvas about three feet tall. 🙂
