30 Paintings in 30 Days. Day 10

"Blue and Orange"
8" x 8"
oil on panel
I bought a dozen of flowers at a flower stand for the first time. You choose flowers and leave money in a box. This orange one was the last to survive. I liked its bright color and wanted to experiment how it looks with a compliment. The combination of glass, ceramic and a flower seemed to be quite interesting and I gave it a try...

The shadow of the blue vase was bright purple. I painted it the way I saw it but it attracted to much attention, so I grayed it down. It took a while to paint the flower. I had to pay attention to the dark spots of the vase showing through to capture its shape and character.
