Roses In the Sun

Roses in the Sun
9 x 12 Oil Painting
by Pat Fiorello

 Continuing on with some experimentation pushing light and shadow, this is "Roses in the Sun" . I started with a reference photo I had take in a beautiful rose garden, but wanted to come closer in, so really cropped it in closely to focus on this cluster of 3 roses. Here are some steps along the way.

Original reference photo

Started with a very rough sketch

Added the shadow shapes of the flowers
Added in background (sky)

Added in lights

Continued to refine shapes, leaves , adjust colors, edges etc..
