Pale Blue Hydrangea
8"x10" original oil on gallery wrap linen
framing optional, standard size
Ahhh, the hydrangeas are back in bloom.
These by far are my favorite flowers.
I really enjoy painting them.
There is so much editing a artist has
to make, even in a simple set up.
The flowers are so detailed with
so many small flowers that make up the
larger ball. In this painting I tried to be
loose and more suggestive. I'm not trying
to be an illustrator in this painting, but
be more painterly.
The design of the page is meant to
drawn the eye into the vase, up the stems and
finally onto the flowers. The shadows help
bring the eye back and around.
Hope you think it works!
