Original Oil Painting Daffodils and Strawberries

Daffodils and Strawberries


12" x 12"
Painted on gessobord.

My daffodils are getting a little old but I managed to paint one more still life. I added a vintage sugar server I found at Goodwill. I love how the tin top reflects the daffodils. The two glass containers are interesting: one with vertical lines and the other smooth. The star of the show is the center daffodil. It took quite awhile to get it just right. The hardest part was the shadow the objects cast and adding the hint of violet to the background wall to contrast and compliment the yellow. Even thou the wall and table are similar the hint of violet and the red strawberries make everything pop!
