Three Roses

Back to the dark side.  I am still enjoying playing with paintings with black backgrounds.  Roses this time which I always find challenging!

I hardly ever rework a prior painting.  I am either satisfied or it goes in the reject pile to be either trashed or painted over. Although initially ok with this painting that was posted in January, the original color of the tulips bothered me- they were dull and looked as if I couldn't decide what color they should be.  Much happier with this version.  Tulips are whiter and brighter.  Changed the shape of the jar for no particular reason.

Three Cherries and Jar

Wow, it has been a while since I posted.  Too busy complaining about the polar vortex.  Perhaps to counter the cold, I leaned to the warm colors in this painting.
