Dianthus - 3rd painting, Kathy Anderson's workshop

Dianthus   9" x 7"   oil     
This was the last painting I had time for at the workshop last week. I had most of it finished, but only after catching up a little, did I have time to complete it today. The whole table of flowers made it hard to choose from and I liked the very springlike small shape and white whites that these Dianthus had. Kathy created her wonderful whites through warm violet gray shadows and making sure the flower area was completely clean and white to begin with. I thought it worked well here.

  1. Je suis restée longuement à admirer ce charmant bouquet. Effectivement, en cette période de l'année, il est agréable d'avoir cette sensation printanière... Une peinture pleine de fraîcheur et de raffinement.
    J'aime beaucoup les tons de couleurs employés pour le fond.
    Une très belle peinture.
    Gros bisous
