Carrying on with the spring flowers theme this week. I chose a dark background to show them up. It needed to be darker than the darkest tone of the white petals as I didn’t want them disappearing too much. 
The little glass vase seamed to mimic their fragility I enjoyed painting it too.

I started as I do in landscape putting the dark shapes in:

It was nice to have the subject close up unlike the landscape which is spread out, so you can really see what’s there. 
I will post my last spring flowers tomorrow.

I’ve heard snow is coming again….how exciting! Although we are just off to Emsworth, Hampshire for a seaside painting/photo weekend, will have to come back if it does snow to paint it!!
