Carnations

Carnations
12 x 12 Oil Painting
by Pat Fiorello
$550



This is one of the few times I've attempted carnations. They are not necessarily my favorite flowers ( I think a lot of people feel that way- remember the "Sex and the City" episode where Berger gets Carrie carnations).  They are not as big and showy as sunflowers or hydrangeas or roses, but they do have their own charm- and last a long time which is helpful when painting from life. One of their essential characteristics is a lot of frilly, almost serrated edges which is important to try to suggest.
