Almost Twins

"Almost Twins"
 6" x 6"
oil on gessobord
The reference photo I took earlier this spring had a very dark background. I wanted to paint a happy, light painting, therefore the background had to become a lighter value. The two flowers look very similar, so I painted one more detailed and a little bit more saturated than another. The second also has cooler highlights. I think it is reflected light from the sky.
