As I attempt to add more complexity to my paintings, things like composition, lighting, patterns, color and value become springboards for so many possibilities. I wanted to further explore a yellow & gray color combo here, but I also wanted to paint white gerber daisies. I picked up a couple yards of upholstery fabric (on the table top) over the weekend, it has a wonderful subtle swirly pattern. While I did manage to work in the yellow/gray colors and the white Gerber daisies-- the swirly pattern didn't quite make the final painting. Maybe next time.
