Carnations, beautiful, long lasting and such a lovely spicey scent. These carnations were a gift from dear husband. Along with some oxeye daisies and wild vines they made a lovely arrangement and I couldn’t resist painting it.
I sketched the shape of the vase and table cover. The flower arrangement was painted spontaneously in a loose style to compliment the free flowing wild flowers. I did a loose varied wash for the background, again to maintain that wildness.
This image is available as a paper or canvas print at my Zazzle gallery.
