Midnight Blue Vase Hydrangeas and Roses by Texas Flower Artist Nancy Medin

Midnight Blue Vase Hydrangeas and Roses
by Nancy Medina
Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas

Midnight Blue was named for the hour I stopped painting today (this morning?). I made another trip to Central Market this weekend, braving the Grapevine Festival traffic and construction on Highway 114 to acquire fresh white roses and larkspur today. I used my favorite big brush to lay in large petals and color notes to match the flowers. I have a surprise for my students who are coming to the 3-day workshop in August - everyone is going to get a gift of one of my favorite painting accessories! Plus donuts, of course. We mustn't forget the donuts.

Stay tuned to my blog, I'll be sharing another step by step flower painting with you very soon!

I can see why you like this vase, Nancy. It is beautiful and a perfect container for these lush blooms. I love how the white roses accent the hydrangeas too.
