Oil on Panel, 5 X 7 inches
About this painting
To my amazement, these beautiful roses have lasted over a week now - I think that the rose on the right may be the same one that I painted in the previous painting
But the feel of this one is very different. The lighter background changes the way the subtle oranges of the roses appear. I repainted the background two or three times, dropping the chroma almost to grey and then bringing it back in, until I was happy with the way the colours of the roses looked against it.
The background has ended up very close to grey, although it doesn’t appear so in the painting. Again, I’m reminded of how colour is all about relationships - change one colour and it changes everything.
Painting flowers always reminds me, too, of the impermanence of life. These roses are finally turning now, and won’t last much longer. The painting will outlive them though - and possibly me too. Perhaps the act of painting flowers is an attempt to capture something ephemeral and make it permanent - at least, a little more so.
