Had started this study a couple of weeks back but never finished it. I've been focused on four back to back commissions for the past few weeks s had to put it aside. Today I had a chance to revisit the start of the painting and to just have fun playing with the shapes and vibrant colors of this collection of flowers.
Below is the original set up, which I began painting from life, but needed to finish from a photo reference I had taken while the flowers were still alive. Wanted to feel like it was a vignette, peaking into a garden rather than a table top set up, so modified the surroundings.
Blog update: You may be aware of rumors that Feedburner is going to go away. That is the service that you signed up with to receive this blog in your email box whenever new posts are added. In anticipation of the elimination of Feedburner, I have changed distribution of this blog to Mailchimp. The transition should be seamless( if I set it up properly. I'm holding my breath on this first post since the transition), but if you notice anything odd or if there is an interruption in service, please let me know by leaving a comment. Thank you!
