Basket of Marigolds

watercolor
14" x 21"
Floral


At present, I have my students working on flowers. I think we will be working on them for a while since we all seem to like flowers. I went to one of our local floral shops and bought of bunch of silk flowers. These really look real and I am sure they will last longer.

This is a painting that I completed from a basket that one of my students, Joanie, had put together. She actually made the basket. I was showing the students how to set up a little still life and how to use a spot light to create an interesting light effect. Enjoy!

Thanks Anoop. These are actually fake flowers that I set up with a spot light. Those silk flowers can really look real.
