8x6in oil on canvas panel SOLD
I wanted to have some fun today after working so hard on the
polk-dot vase yesterday. This little group of flowers did the trick.
I like the happy colors.
When I have something light next to something dark
I always try to place a transition color/value to step
the values together. With white flowers, the shadow
area is important to achieve that, but so are the edges.
I do try leave a high contrast in the focal area...
don't always remember though!
Will show a little demo of transition value tomorrow.
