White Clematis

White Clematis
5"x 7" original oil
canvas board


A recent visit to my mother's and
WOW what a beautiful white clematis.
It's about 6" across. Couldn't resist
painting such a beauty.

Another study on white.
There is very little pure white in this painting.
Even a soft non-reflective surface, such as a
flower petal, picks up the colors around.
Only the very brightest areas have pure white
paint. Note, the table top has a bit of
white reflecting on it's surface. And the porcelain
vase has the table top reflecting on it's surface.
