Flower Study #17

  Apple Blossoms
 Study #17
12 x16 Oil Painting by Pat Fiorello

Today's study was really part of a larger painting lesson, but the subject is still flowers so I'm including it as part of my flower study intensive.
White flowers are amongst the hardest to paint (yellows are also tough due to limited value range), so I was happy to have gotten some blossoms in the back to appear to recede and others closer to the vase appear closer thru use of warmer and cooler temperatures.
