Red Carnation

Back to a very dark background. It seems I lean toward the extremes of a very light or very dark background. Perhaps, a mid-tone is in order soon.

  1. I love this. Each of your flowers seems to have a halo of its own color around it. I'd love to see some progress paintings of how you achieve that effect. It's lovely!

  2. I love the light and composition in this painting. I looks like a carnation and you did a great job with the gesture. I can never seem to work well with a dark background and yours is perfect!

  4. The colors are dramatic; sense of light is inviting; brushstrokes offer movement and suggestion. It's a beautiful painting.

  5. I just discovered your blog through the Daily paintworks challenge. I really like your sense of composition and the way you play with the edges. I'll be checking out your work in the future!
