Zinnias Square Jar Toplight - Summer Flower Bouquet- Vase of Zinnias- Autumn Flowers

These flowers are from a farm stand just down the road.  They are sturdy and bright and have  colorful centers to contrast with the pale peach petals.  The painting is mostly high key, (that is, light in value); even the background is pale. But the dark shadows in the flowers let you know where the light is coming from and they keep the painting from being washed out and boring.  On my Etsy store.
