I have been experimenting with different techniques in floral paintings this winter. This is one of my favorites. I really like the transparent and opaque layers mixing together in the roses and the glass vase, creating a luminous halo around the bouquet. The background is textured a bit , in a neutral dark burnt umber color. It reminds me of leather, a nice foil for the feminine floral arrangement. The painting is oil on stretched canvas, 9" x 12", and is for sale . Contact me if you are interested. Enjoy being inside and warm in the cold weather !
