I am interested in working with still life, but not in the traditional manner. In this painting I am showing a top view of the background and a front to back view of the rose. Each has a different light source and I used direct painting for the rose and line drawing with glazing for the background.
Again my inspiration for the background was wallpaper. After I drew in the flower images I glazed the whole background with a medium colored pink. Then I taped it off to get the accordion look and painted the left sides lighter to make it look 3-D. I painted the edges and the depth with a transparent dark glaze. The flower pattern shows through all the transparent layers. I am keeping the framing within the canvas edge and painting the 1.5-inch sides so the painting does not need any additional framing.
I painted the rose in a traditional still life manner with the rose leaning over a tabletop casting a shadow on the front of the green tablecloth. This painting is framed and glued to the background.
