I bought this gorgeous pot of magenta mums last week and it's been sitting in my studio begging to be painted ever since! The little brass bird, which is one of my favorite still life objects, was the perfect complement for the pinks and violets. It picked up some of the reflected color and cast it into the shadows. This was painted with brushes and palette knives. There's a lot of texture in the thick paint that is hard to show in a digital image.
