Floral Painting - "A Friendly Bunch"

I find myself always thinking about painting, no matter where I am. This can lead to some surprising moments of inspiration. I found these roses on display at Central Market, my favorite grocery store in San Antonio. The entire store is inviting, and the floral section is no exception. I was drawn to the way these roses all lay together in the display.

Yellows can be a serious challenge, especially in the context of roses. In addition to my standby, Cadmium Yellow Medium, I pulled out colors that I rarely if ever use, just to test their capabilities - Indian Yellow, Winsor Yellow and Cadmium Yellow Light.
