|Flower Study #24|
Pink, Red & Blue
12 x 12
Oil Painting on Panel by Pat Fiorello
This study was based on a miniature floral arrangement by my friend John Grady Burns. John is a well known floral designer ( see JGBFlora) and instructor who teaches the 3 week Primary Flowers program I am starting today at Halls School of Design in Atlanta. I am partly taking the class for fun, but also with the intention that I learn more about creating beautiful arrangements that I can include in my still life paintings. I figure the more I understand my subject and branch out ( pun intended) into some more creative combinations of flower shapes, colors and textures, the better for my painting inspiration.
Here's the photo of the original arrangement. It is in a tiny urn just a few inches high.
I will share updates on how the program is going and plan to do some more floral study paintings of the floral arrangements we are doing in class which I'll post over the next few weeks.
