"Petunias and Cherry"
Oil on 5x7 inch hardboard panel
I thought I'd try painting these petunias again on a light background. I set them in a small white bowl, and added the cherry in the corner where it seemed a bit too empty. I don't usually paint flowers and it's really deceiving how much they actually move while painting them. It isn't noticeable until you go back to a certain flower and it's in a different position than before, and it's in a more interesting position, and you have to decide whether to leave it alone or change it! These petunias were fun to paint though, with their interesting shapes and unusual color.
