Umbrella and Vase of Flowers
I used an underpainting in this composition to create warmth. A large part of a painting is the compostion or design. I am concentrating much effort in setting up the still life. It is difficult to find the correct balance of objects and color. I chose to soften edges and leave areas of the painting abstract. My intention is to lead the eye throughout the painting and create a visual dialogue of movement. This oil painting is 16 by 20 inches on stretched canvas. If interested in purchasing any of my paintings please email. Paintings may be purchased through my Etsy shop.
