Ranunculus




















oil on canvas panel 8x8 inches
Flowers are beautiful and difficult subjects. If I didn't love them so much, I wouldn't bother!!! I wiped and repainted the main flower three times, but finally I got the look I wanted. Several of the stems were coming out from shadow into the light. I hope you can see that. The background is a bit bluer than the photo here.

  4. Are there better flowers than orange ranunculus? I think not. And you mastered them here - love the background, and yes, we see the stems flitting in and out of the light!
