I am on my summer holiday and i have been mostly just goofing off with the kids.
Here is one small flower painting from life. It is painted very early in the morning.
I woke up like 5 am to do this.

Lets see if can manage to upload this with my mobile phone..

Hello Antti,
you catched a nice atmosphere here, values and colours are really soft and connected, great work.
Best, Marco.

Antti Rautiola said...

Marco, thank you very much.
Values were probably the most hardest part in this one. I had to constantly remind myself to keep the flower very bright comparing to the background. I chose to paint that one rose on right first and make it almost white. Every other roses are darker, very slighty, than that first one.
