Sharing the Red Dress


sold

Here are two more of my spendy sunflowers, along with a red vase from the thrift store. I've painted the vase once before, from above. Glass depends entirely on the little subtle shifts, and most importantly, the highlights! If you over-do/exaggerate any of it, it ceases to look like glass, in my experience.

This shared "red dress" is far snazzier than ANY little black dress I've ever seen. Nice of the beautiful flirty flowers to share it--BFF's!

Wonderful painting, Carole--I love it!

Dude! You have NAILED these sunflowers(and I mean in general...yesterday's too)! My very favorite parts? The two stems in the water....and those warm rich creamy bits of light green in the center catching the light! Ohhhhhhh....and the big loose purple shadow!

Well actually "spend" is good, don't you think? I love this piece as I do all of your flower paintings. The strokes are strong, loose and vibrant.
