This is a companion piece to Winter Bouquet. This work is an exploration in painting subject matter which can so easily go sweet in a way which creates instead a bold and dramatic effect. After doing the drawing I wet the surrounding negative area and flowed in cadmium yellow. After that dried I flowed in yellow ochre. Finally cadmium red. I painted the floral area with cerulean blue cadmium red and violet. The exact opposite was done with Winter Bouquet.
My framing is always archival. The frame is gold metal.
