October Petunias

Oil Painting Still Life Art Flowers Autumn Botanical Garden Fall

Oil on Canvas, 12" x 9"

Petunias were still in full bloom last week and I caught some cascading from their container.  I was instantly attracted to their shadows on the concrete walk and also on the brick wall of the library.  Sunlight highlighted some the petunia petals while the others remained shaded.  These all formed an interesting design to paint.  The container became a more "pumpkiny" color when I painted it because it just felt right. I loved popping in all of the shades of reds and pinks in this piece!
