Flower Study #38

Flower Study # 38
Fruit & Flowers Della Robbia
12 x 12
Oil Painting on Panel
By Pat Fiorello 

I just got back from teaching a painting workshop in beautiful Lake Garda, Italy. Will share more about that later this week, but still have a few flower studies from my flower design program that I wanted to share. This one is from a design we did which is called a Della Robbia- an arrangement that includes fruit and flowers. Here we included apples, limes and kiwi in the arrangement in addition to the orchids and roses. The colors in the painting were a little hard to photograph and adjust quite right, but it has a more subtle neutral cool grey background than is probably showing up on the computer monitor.
The actual arrangement is pictured below at my work station in the floral design studio.
