It is always fun to experiment with colours. After painting red, pink, white and peach roses, here is an attempt to paint yellow roses.
Various yellows such as ochre, chrome, cadmium and lemon have been used with mixes of reds, blues and whites to paint the roses. The supporting flowers compliment the yellow roses. The light shining on the crystal vase shows its edges.
The burnt umber background makes the flowers glow. The direction of the brushstrokes make evident the fall of the table cloth at the edge of the table. Few flowers have been placed on the table to balance out the top heavy composition.

Your paintings are lovely. Did you teach yourself to paint or did you take a class? I don’t know if I would be any good at it, but I would like to give it a try.

Thank you Laurie for your appreciation. I had taken oil painting lessons one summer long time back.
