Flower Study #23 Ranunculus in Silver Container

Red Hot Ranunculus
12 x 16
 Oil Painting on Panel by Pat Fiorello

Here's a painting of a single type of flower( ranunculus) accented by some berries. I like including these flowers in still lives since they tend to have a lot of movement.

 Here's the original set up along with some steps along the way blocking the painting in. I decided to go with the dark background for more drama, but I like the light background as well and may give that a try too.

Initial block in of the bouquet

Block in with background added, before any from, detail added to the flowers and container.
