Wet Paint, In The Studio...

Fiori Colorato
30x30, Oil/Linen

Once my colorful bouquet of Gladioli started opening, I decided on this cropped view with the light skimming across the top of the arrangement. I avoided getting too caught up in the tight rendering of the flowers with their individual petals. I focused on getting the forms and then built up the buds and the flowers using swift strokes of lighter and darker values. In the background I kept a subtle transition of colors, values and light.
