Messing About with Paint

Japanese Peonies

Oil on canvas 60cmx50cm

Japanese Peonies, taken from an arrangement given to us by the school kids in Yokohama. I didn’t know where the painting was going and tried not to over think the painting, rather letting it take its own course.

I ended up simplifying the composition as the foliage was distracting. Also ended up adding more negative space on the right hand side of the composition for balance.

The abstract start of the painting was interesting.
