16 x 16 Oil Painting
by Pat Fiorello
I've painted this same bouquet before but found a better photo taken out in the sun and cropped in differently for a whole new view of it. The sunlight makes a huge difference. Not a big surprise, but a good reminder that "it's all about the light". In the spirit of impressionism, painting is not about the subject, but rather how the light wraps around the forms and what that light does to our impression of them. The complex and varied shapes of flowers make them intriguing subjects for studying light and shadow.
