Cosmos & Wildflowers

Cosmos & Wildflowers
8x8 Acrylic on Gallery Wrap Canvas
My pinks were crying to be used yesterday - so out came the ever popular pink cosmos. This canvas was underpainted in a medium lavender shade, leaning towards cobalt blue. I love the way the warm green sets off the purple feeling of the background and dark vase. Black vases are always fun to paint using all the darkest darks mixed from purples, Prussian blue, ultramarine, red violet, crimson and burnt sienna - no color missing here! Cosmos & Wildflowers will make the trip with me to The Greenbrier on Saturday and hopefully will go home with one of the guests. Second photo shows detail from upper left of this cosmos tangle. Your comments are always welcome.
