The difference a background makes...

Adie's Day
16 x 20 Oil Painting
 by Pat Fiorello

I had a request for a painting of flowers for a yellow kitchen with some blue accents. I had recently finished the yellow roses and white hydrangea demonstration in my class but the size was too small and I thought the dark background might be a little serious for a small  kitchen. So using the photo's of the orignal set up for inspiration. I made a few adjustments. The canvas was much larger so I had more room to lengthen the vase. I also made the background a slate blue grey ( it's a little more neutral in reality than it's showing up on my monitor) . The lighter background gives a whole different mood from the original which is shown below.
