White roses, cups and vase

white-roses-cups-vase-11-6-16

This was my first try in painting a decorated vase!  This painting is done in acrylics.  The roses are actually artificial flowers I bought at Michaels.  I have quite a collection of artificial flowers that I use as stand-ins for the real thing.  This enables me to paint flowers in the worst of winter weather.  The artificial flowers made now are stunning!

I painted the Chinese flower vase first with white mixed with raw sienna, and carefully did the shading.  Only after I was satisfied with the form did I paint the Chinese design on top.
