12 x 16 Oil Painting
by Pat Fiorello
I promised I would post the finished painting from the photo I shared in my last post on Wednesday.
Here is it .You can see I used a bit of artistic license to reformat the overall shape of the bouquet to fit a rectangular canvas panel. I could have done it as a square, but I really like the trailing vine on the right and wanted to have enough space to include it. The white flowers in the back were the most fun and it may be hard to see in this small photo of the painting, but the flowers give that translucent feel that they have in real life.
Painting is magic- it continues to amaze me how you can place shapes of color next to one another in a certain way and give the illusion of something real. An easy concept to understand, yet a lifetime of study to master.
In case you missed the photo from the last post here was the inspiration.
