Romantic Dreamer Roses - Flower Paintings by Nancy Medina


Romantic Dreamer Roses
by Nancy Medina 
Oil on Archival Panel

Romantic Dreamer Roses is the newest daily painting in Flower Mound Studio. I used transparent color to lay in the brightest pinks, and then color notes in opaques around the edges to push the jewel tones forward. I love creating clear glass vases on dark backgrounds, and pulling those dark color paths through the glass behind the vase. The last thing I paint is the clear glass vase, so I create the green stems beneath the roses as if the vase does not exist, then finish the vase in the last few steps of the painting.
