A compilation of paintings in the chunkier style

Here's a quick sampling of some of my brighter florals and a landscape of Red Mountain.

Recently I took a workshop from Dreama Tolle Perry. Actually it was a year ago. I loved the concept she uses of doing a loose underpainting in transparent oil mixed with medium. Then while the paint is still wet, float saturated thick color over top with loose painterly brushstrokes. Some of the underpainting comes through, and it's quite luminous. These are all painted in that style, using the brighter color palette I picked up from her class.
