Summer Bouquet




This was a nice set up to work from. I chose a larger format and enjoyed the increase in size. With this painting I did an underpainting and was careful to plan more fully. I determined the key that I wanted the painting and worked my color from there. In particular, I enjoyed painting the flowers and the pattern on the background paper.

Lovely clean colors as always, Linda. I am sure it will be stunning to see it in the 12 x 12 format!

Kathy, thank you for your comment...I appreciate your visits to my blog!

Vic, thank you so much for your comment. I think that working with a strong underpainting works well for me. In this one I used a warm red which can barely be seen, but it helped me organie.

Really lovely! I love those glasses--the colors and the way they are cropped at the edge of the painting. My favorite part of the painting are the coral flowers. Just gorgeous!
