Last weekend I wandered into the garden, clipped some yellow roses and some pink flowers. (I don't know what the pink flowers are...but the "bush" they are growing on is the size of a small to medium tree. I don't cut it as I probably should because it provides some much needed shade on the small patio adjoining my studio.) I haven't used this particular vase before so I put the flowers in and around it, draped a white towel over my cardboard still life "stage" and away I went.
I have about four hours in this 16" x 12" painting. I'd like to do a bit more study on still life painting and in particular, learn more about painting flowers, but until I do I find these simple setups a lot of fun to do. There's something pretty freeing about still life...and those wonderful colors are just great to dive into!
