Red roses transformed into a tornado.
This is what happens when you leave a painting with the artist for a long time. This week I was clearing out the studio and ran across a few paintings that needed to be improved upon. this painting was a boquet of red roses against a light background that never quite worked for me. First I tried to darken the back ground and when that didn't suit me I thought I would just paint over it and decided to clean my pallet onto the canvas. What started to appear was a tornado so I decided to go with it. Black is so hard for me to photograph properly but the finished painting is very dark on the tornado part and the sky below is a medium yellowish color... kind of a combo of both of the last two pics.
