Peach Roses on Yellow Table

I am pushing myself a little further with every painting.  My gift is not painting something realistically, but rather, alluding to the impression of form.  I have worked and reworked this painting until finally resolving some of the areas that gave me indigestion.  Another of the tips that Putnam suggested is to put distance between you and the canvas so that you can't  tighten up.  She suggests putting a garbage can in front of the easel....while I didn't do that I kept a respectable distance from the piece.  I like the outcome of this painting and the colors that have emerged.

Love the clear vision of this, and the way it is done. A few well placed brush strokes define everything. Well done.
