Rose Bouquet...














White Roses. 12×16″ oil on canvas. I feel like this series could be a fun one to explore. I am really enjoying the challenge of painting floral still lifes, and seeing how much I can let the edges go.

I have been playing around with making a time lapse video of the development of a painting. While I painted this still life I set up a camera, and have put together a 5 minute video of this painting being created. I’m hoping to do a few more of these, and smooth some of this stuff out, but this is a start at least. You can see this video on YouTube.

  1. I love this Colin! I would love to see more! I like to do floral still life sometimes and always it is a struggle to stay loose and see how much information I have to have and what I can leave out. Going to now watch your video!

  2. Okay, had to comment again! Love the video! Looking forward to more! Thanks for taking the time to do that. Really interesting!

    Thank you again colin for sharing your art.

  5. Really wonderful painting. ! And great video too! How long in real time did this take you to paint? Ie outlying those lemon whites over under painting colors. Soo vibrant!

    Thanks for recording your painting process!! This was just great and as others have said, I’d love to see more! Beautiful interpretation. It was really interesting to me to watch you paint in the background, layering warms and cools.

    Thanks for posting this video. It makes a great case for painting perhaps being worth so much more than a painting. Very generous of you to let us catch you in the act.

    Thanks everyone,

    It was a challenge to make the video, but it’s fun to see the whole process sped up like this. I hope to have more to post this summer.
