"Yellow Roses In Vase" by Li Mahalik

Oil on Telati Board, 11x14

There are times when we are stuck in a not-so-good spot to paint a live model, we have to be more inventive and selective to move object(s) around in our mind and then on canvas for better composition. In this painting, I was looking at three objects evenly spaced with no overlapping whatsoever. I elected to paint the vase with roses and a little brown bottle next to it. Bad choice! I forgot about the magic of threesomes (or odd numbers).
So, I took out the little bottles and placed a rose petal, instead. I think it worked better.
