Ranunculus, Oil, 6x12

SOLD

Today I felt like painting flowers.  It's Spring, and sunny out - and I'm yearning for my own flowers in my garden.  I'm working on my edges, and on the values here, shockingly the easiest part of this painting was the glass vase!  Thank you guys for all your comments - it is so great to hear from you!

  1. The glass came out so well! Faultless! Also love your ranunculus...they are so multi-layered and difficult! I see many of the bulb type of flowers on the blogs, I presume this is their season in the US?

  2. Ranunculuses are one of my all time favorite flowers, and you've suggested their spherical shape beautifully. Love the color contrast and the variety in the flower sizes.

  9. A WINNER! The flowers are awesome. The violet and yellow color harmony rocks and the glass is slammin'!
    This needs to win a prize. Maybe NRAS?
    Don't fret about being tight, you aren't, you're YOU and it works!!

  15. Wow... I guess skilled painters find challenging subjects like glass easy. Those paper thin petals turned out wonderfully Kelley!

  17. When I saw the small icon of this I nearly broke my fingers trying to get here and see it up close. Love Ranunculus but they look crazy hard to paint. Love every single thing about this. It sings that Spring is here!
