Primary Colours

In-class exercise, painting using the three primary colours:

I think this was one of my failures. It was actually pretty nice to begin with, but I got caught up in trying to capture the fact that the flower and red leaves were backlit and seemed to be glowing. Gorgeous effect! But so difficult to paint. I decided it needed more contrast and blobbed on a dark gray background. I spent too much time messing with the background and didn't get around to refining the vase and the cloth.
