Into the Light
Into the Light 16 x 20 Oil Painting by Pat Fiorello
My first large painting of the year. I had seen this grouping of white roses in Tuscany and had taken a photo. Finally got to paint them. My aim in this one was to get a sense of a lush garden with depth and roses coming out into the light. Concentrated lots on varying hard and soft edges and warm and cool colors.
