Abundant Austins

Abundant Austins
18 x 18 Oil Painting by Pat Fiorello

I have painted these David Austin roses before from photographs taken in gardens, but I don't think I've ever had the real flowers to paint them from life. So I treated myself by ordering a dozen at our local flower wholesaler in Atlanta. They came in yesterday and I thought I'd have a few days, but they opened up pretty fast, so I got up and was at work in my studio by 7AM today to catch these beauties at their peak.

Below is the still life set up I arranged, a close up of the center of interest, some of the steps in the process as well as some of the paint on my palette- mixing warmer, cooler etc..
