Spring Flowers: Rape, Narcissi, Primrose




I finished this painting today.

The flowers are now three days old, and the primroses are dead.

The challenge was having so many small-headed flowers, and also getting the composition to work on a square canvas.

What I like about it is the blue background with the yellow flowers. These are unusual colours for me in this combination.

Here is a link to a master of flower paintings.

Intense to say the least. I see with this painting you have gone with the darker background, that blue is so deep. Great job as always. Color, color color ! Wow
