Backyard Blossoms

Backyard Blossoms
8 x 10 Oil Painting by Pat Fiorello

I've been experimenting a bit with different  approaches to depicting  light and shadow. Revisited a photo I'd taken of these David Austin Desdemona Roses that grow in my backyard. I first painted them a year ago and thought I'd give it another try, focusing on strong light and shadow on the major blossoms and more suggestion of activity on the background.

Did this painting starting with background, wiping out the overall shape, building shadow shapes, then light shapes and refining from there. Here are some of the steps along the way below.
