Study of Carnations on Red, 8x8 Oil on canvas, Click to Bid
This time I went bolder with the background just to see what would happen. I used my deep red drape for my set up wondering how pink on red would pan out. Then I pushed the light to give it that little glow.
It certainly made a bolder statement. A little sexier then the previous painting. This one might even work in a bachelor pad where as the previous one, in my opinion, was a bit softer and more feminine.
It looks great against my buttery - parchmenty colored walls and it sends a completely different message than the last one. The carnation is facing forward sends a bold, in your face, I'm trying to tell you something - message.
Maybe I'm over-thinking again. :)
