Classic White

Classic White
16 x 20 Oil Painting by Pat Fiorello

After doing some studies of simple all white subjects a few weeks back, I decided to set up a still life made up of mostly white objects.  I included the green stems and leaves so technically it's not purely all white, but it's a start in that direction.

I had set up the still life in my studio and got about 80% done with the painting before I left town for several weeks. I prefer to complete things all in one session or for larger more complex pieces over the course of several sequential days, but had no choice here. Of course, the flowers were long gone so I had to improvise a bit. At this point I'm declaring it complete, but I would like to continue to do some exploration of all white subjects, both with indoor and outdoor lighting.
