Let's join Bentley, My Studio Assistant, in the studio and we will share with you inspirations for a Flower Shop painting. He loves to sit in the studio by my chair waiting to have his morning snack.
I have lots of photos that I have taken of flower markets to use for reference. Note most of the flowers are in white buckets and I want to paint white buckets in my painting.
I will show you how I use smaller white buckets in my studio to get a similar effect to paint. I brought the pot of pink Stock into the studio along with the pot of Spanish Lavender so I would have a few live flowers to paint. I have lots of silk flowers in my studio to use when I do not have the real things.
I sometimes use silk flowers when painting in my studio when the real flowers are not in season - I try and use a few real flowers to make the set up more realistic and used the pink Stock and Lavender. I also placed the silk flowers in white buckets to give the look of a real flower shop.
The finished painting with the flowers in the white buckets.
Thank you for stopping by. Ii love hearing from you and sincerely appreciate your visits, e-mails, comments and those who follow my blog. Please let me know if you have any questions or would like to see me paint something special.
Have a lovely week. Blessings, Erin
