Due to this weeks cold and snow, we have several zinnia bouquets in our house right now. So, I decided to do one more zinnia painting. My study for this was a bit different. I spent quite a lot of time with the still life set-up, making sure the flowers were arranged in a good composition, choosing and arranging the fabric on the table, getting a great shadow which included some of the flower shapes for interest. But, the painting seemed to have a mind of it's own. The flowers wanted to be life-sized, which left out the bottom of the vase and most of the shadow and lower fabric edge. I scraped it off and re-started twice, but each time the flowers came out life sized. So, I guess it was meant to be.
