Red & White

Red & White
8 x 10 oil painting
by Pat Fiorello

 Tried something new today. I wanted to paint some flowers not in a vase but just sprawled out. I intended to do an 8 x 10 painting.  As part of my May Flowers Challenge this month I'm keeping the paintings on the smaller side .

I took the flowers and leaves and laid them out on top of another 8 x 10 canvas    (fortunately that one had a plastic wrap still on so the panel didn't get wet). This allowed me to physically lay out the composition the way I wanted and know that it would fit on an 8 x 10 canvas.

I didn't have a white rose available, but used the pink one as a stand in and made it a little bit whiter.  Below is a photo of my layout on the canvas.
