#2 in flower series - Clematis

This painting is the second in my flower series. I found the photo in the RL and I think it may be a white clematis. Thanks to the contributor for the photo. I was drawn to this one because I loved how the flower was backlit bringing out the greens and other colors in the flower and the the surrounding green. This is 18 x 18 inches square and it can be hung either this way or with the stem in either of the corners. Any C & C appreciated.

Thanks for looking,

Linda

Re: #2 in flower series - Clematis

You've caught the delicacy of the lighting well. If it's the variety I think it is, it is almost transparent in reality, and that effect comes accross well. Nicely done.
