Double Delight

Hi Everyone,

I would like to start today by saying thank you to all the people who welcomed me back. The warmth of well wishes truly surprised me.

Today’s piece I began in early November. The thinking was to give it to a much loved family member for Christmas.

I spent 3 or 4  hours everyday on it for weeks and then had to revert to Plan B for the gift idea.

The painting is only 10″ x 8″ and I found it extremely challenging as the flowers are lit from behind. I knew very little in the techniques to capture this so the process  was a learning curve.

The painting is now complete and I have to travel about 200 miles to deliver it.

Whilst photographing it for the blog, I decided to try the negative mode on the camera…

Hope you have  enjoyed today’s small offering.

    I like the yellows in the flowers. Your brush strokes are very precise it must take a lot of planning or preparation.

      Hi, thanks so much for the reblog, I really appriciate this. The piece did take some time as I was learning a new technique by trail and error. I am happy that I stuck with it . I am pleased with the results and its brillant to get such positive feedback 🙂

    Flowers are everywhere but to paint some requires a lot of work. I like his yellows they really pop.

    after a while i’ve decided the blue background has a more natural feel and beauty about it
