Astilbe My Heart
Astilbe My Heart 18x24 oil on linen
I always choose a strong flower shape, (like a lilac or peony or iris), to put some mass in my composition that automatically tends to draw the viewer's eye. Today's setup I did not do that. All the flowers I chose are smaller blossoms or very light airy clusters. Instead I used the glassware to add the more solid masses. It is just a little different twist.
I used all shades of green in the glassware just for the challenge of getting variety in those subtle differences.
