In a burst of creativity I set about painting the still life set up again, I changed the lighting and that in turn changed the background color slightly. Here they are drying – Sometimes exploring a subject over and over brings new results. There is always a freshness in the first painting and in the second I edited the information for the larger format. It brings a strength and confidence of brushwork that wouldn’t have been present had I not painted the smaller one first. I didn’t want to get fussy or busy with detail, it has a modern feel. Thus the title – ” A modern point of view”
Now those wonderful blooms back on my dining table –
