Hydrangea In Pink 10x8 oil

Here is another in the hydrangea series.  I have not taken as much care setting up lately.  I tend to cut a flower out of the yard and plop it in the window.  This makes for confusing light.  I have the light in the room and the light coming through the window.  It kinda kills any drama.  I just want to paint right now.  Not a lot of concern for the details.  Just practicing moving paint around and mixing.  
This painting now belongs to Kate!

This is really lovely Dori! The conflicting light that you mentioned does not take anything away from this but adds to the quiet scene you captured.

I like this one the best! Great handling of loose brushstrokes and just enough detail. Beautiful!

Well, your quick set up is certainly working! The painting is fabulous.

Dori, this is a beauty! As soon as I saw its miniature on Karen's blog I tuned in to see! Nice color harmony...drama is not always necessary when beauty is so sweet.

Dori, just keep doing what your doing. It's great. It has a beautiful freshness of being "just picked from my garden". I love it!

Yummmmmmmmmmmm
My favorite part??? The bowl.
It's all terrific but that bowl bowls me over... no really it does!!

This is really beautiful. I think the multiple light sources and that fact that there is no strong light and shadow are part of the appeal. It feels very natural and atmospheric, rather than "set up" with a spotlight. You've captured it so well. Gorgeous work!

It's lovely. The flower really does look the way a hydrangea does.

your moving paint around and mixing seems quite effective. Light no matter where it is coming from presents challenges and opportunities and i think you did just fine with this one.
Good job

I love the light in this arrangement Dori, it looks like natural light and has a glow that is so pretty!
