Blue Rhapsody Hydrangeas - Flower Paintings by Nancy Medina


Blue Rhapsody Hydrangeas
by Nancy Medina
Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas

Blue Rhapsody is the daily newbie in Flower Mound Studio, based on a setup from my worksho last weekend. We placed a purple silk cloth behind a batch of fresh blue hydrangeas, and draped the cloth at an angle (since we didn't have enough to cover the entire background). The warm light turned the cloth orange on one side, and almost white on the other, leaving streaks of crimons violets in the shadows. My partner in flower stalking, Mary Medley, and I both agreed such color schemes make our hearts go pitty pat! I wonder if there are others out there nearly as nuts about flowers as Mary and I....?
