This painting illustrates the abstract quality of floral compositions by utilizing rules of good composition of color, value and mass. Most any floral bouquet will exhibit these qualities if they are allowed to take their natural forms within a bouquet, although many "arrangements" of flowers by less accomplished commercial florists often feel stiff and plastic, even when using fresh flowers.

This project is a good one for learning some basic techniques in painting floral compositions.

Roses have been a favorite of lovers and painters since the beginning of time. The perfect form of the rose is a challenge to the artist and the beautiful execution of a painted rose is its own best reward.

This project was painted directly from life with no preliminary detailed drawing. The lesson to be learned in this project is a method of painting that uses many alla-prima techniques, along with traditional glazing and opaque overpainting methods.
