I started this still life of flowers in a brass bowl a while ago but never felt comfortable with the way it began. So I started over on a larger canvas and with a looser brush and more color.
My favorite still life artist of all time is (Henri Fantin Latour). I am trying to keep Latour's loose brush work in mind as I proceed with this painting. My attention is focused on the the white peony in the center. I am trying to work from the center out remembering that the star of the show should be supported and not upstaged by any other object.
