Three Pink Roses
Oil on Panel 7 x 5 inches
This painting is on a rigid Ampersand Tempered Hardboard Panel which is acid free and archival.
The more I work with artificial light the more I’m realising that, far from being a second best to natural light, it’s opening up new avenues. Working at a window I couldn’t have overhead lighting, but it’s a beautiful way to light flowers.
In a way I don’t quite understand yet, it also seems to be changing the way I approach my painting - at least a little.
I deliberately simplified everything apart from the roses in this one. It was easy to do since they’re really the only part of the painting not in some kind of shadow.
And I allowed myself rather more leeway than usual with the colours. The value balance allowed me to work some higher chroma colours into the background, without (I hope) weakening the composition. It meant I could give the painting a glow that natural, indoor light, as beautiful as it is, doesn’t lend itself to.
I love how this one came out. More top-lit flowers will be coming soon.
