Hydrangea

I love the colors of purple and yellow. They just glow when you put them together.

This is an unusual arrangement of the still life. Initially I try to put them together nicely as usual still life painting would do. But later I felt it was a bit boring and came up with this arrangement. I think if the right part moves up more, it would be more interesting.

I like to paint still life. You don't worry about the accuracy of the objects. You only need to paint the right mood, colors and the feeling.
