"Wistful" --- SOLD

Carnations are tough to paint. I did a large painting with these the other day and thought I'd give them another go. I think the only way to really get it right is to squint at them the whole time and paint the fuzzy shapes/colors you see. It almost gets abstract then, but when you back away, it looks right. Ok - it's late, my brain is frazzled, and I'm off to bed.

I think you did a great job. The subtle green light in the flower centers-very nice touch that adds a lot of depth.

i love the way you can capture the scene by loosely brushed strokes. I could never do that! Great work!
