What type of piece is this? Painting Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this piece. This is mostly for lmfr, who's doing such a great job. Thought you'd enjoy seeing this exercise I did before starting a new painting. I was trying out different colors and I discovered that Winsor Newton Ultramarine Violet has a huge amount of granulation, so I wanted to experiment what would happen if I used it with other colors. Look at the one on the bottom left in particular -- see what happened with the blossoms? fun stuff. I took notes, and I'll stick this in my notebook for reference.
