Pale green suggestion for the background

Magazine cut-out suggestion

Working on the commission piece is not easy, but still enjoyable task. It gives the Artist space to create and propose, yet still keeps on the toes to meet the client’s needs. My client wanted an imaginary bouquet of Ranunculus flowers in the transparent glass vase. I was given the small cut out from Martha Stewart catalog to follow the color pattern, the tablecloth style, and the type of Ranunculus (as we now know there are more than 600 species in the World ). I also was told that the style of my Tea Roses paining and Roses in The Glass Vase painting would be the best when I decide on composition. And the background should be pale green not dark.

………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………
First I decided on composition. As there will be lots of flowers and petals, I will do a very simple almost central composition. The Flower Symphony will speak for itself. Between tablecloth and Ranunculus flowers in the vase there should not be a competition; therefore, I will make a tablecloth flowers very simple and will try my best to work on realistic painting for Ranunculus.

Ranunculus Study

An incoming commission, in which I will paint Ranunculus bouquet, gave me an opportunity to research, sketch and learn more about these special and very beautiful flowers. The name Ranunculus actually came from Latin for “little frog”. These flowers prefer lots of water and are found near lakes, ponds; just like frogs. Another name for Ranunculus is Buttercup. There are about 600 species of these flowers are found in the world so far. I’ve also learned that these cute flowers are long lasting cut flowers in the bouquet. But not all beauty is safe. It appears that fresh buttercups are actually poisonous, yet when dry they are absolutely safe. Some of Ranunculus flowers have numerous petals and others none. I personally love the ones that look like roses, peonies or poppies. Although, takes quite a bit to paint petal after petal..
