|Roses Inspired by Sorolla|
8 x 10 Oil Painting
I created a painting ( see "Reverence" in the previous post) inspired by this photo in the pink tones the other day. I had seen these beautiful sunlit roses at the Chicago Botanical Garden during a recent visit.
As an experiment, I decided to paint them a 2nd time with the aim of capturing the sense of sunlight as Sorolla did. Just for fun, I changed the color of the roses in the reference photo.
I tried to push the differences between light and shadow and hopefully captured the feeling of the garden on a warm sunny day.
