Oil Painting of Lilacs, 9" x 12" Oil on Canvas Panel

"Spring Lilacs"

Spotted these on my morning walk today and ran back with my car and a bucket of water to grab them. I was toying with some color ideas for a larger piece. Not bad for a quick study. The yellow is a bit more pronounced here than in the actual painting. Lost my more expensive version of Photoshop and I'm afraid it will be awhile before I can spill $1,000 on a full version. But the rest of the colors ring pretty true. Of course, I can't guarantee your monitor's colors will be the same.
