Small painting: A romantic bouquet, 12 x 12 inches

This is the last of four small paintings headed to the VK Gallery in November.  I will be using a softer palette with deep reds and sage greens.  Above is my sketch and you can see that I have started to block in the background.

The background and bouquet have been completed.  The soft pinks and deep reds are lovely.

Here is the finished painting.  A different colour palette for me, but I love the feeling of this one.  Figs really are fun to paint and I have been using them a lot lately.  I plan to do a large spilled figs painting this weekend so watch this space!
