Blue and yellow must be one of the most calming combinations of colour and I love the classic edge a bit of delft lends to any simple selection of fruit. Warm reflections of light play off on the silver urn in background to complete a lovely, homely scene.
So after some 'words' over the weekend, my husband came home with these B E A U T I F U L red roses today! Before the sun could set I quickly put together this still life, and still it is, as this peace offering had the desired effect!
A darling painting of shabby chic type of roses, beautifully fluffy. I love how it turned out and have used to produce a range of my gift bags. This painting would look lovely in any beach house setting or vintage type of interior.
Here is a lovely little oil on canvas study of a white rose. It is bright and soft with an interisting play between texture, tone and color. I did not use any white as it were, and in that lies the beauty of this painting. I believe it will look beautiful in any interior and would be easy to decorate any room with it.
