In this painting I have tried to add impact to the center flower by utilizing a complementary palette, emphasizing the delicate pink color of the flower by contrasting it with a green background of leaves and stems, while in the mean time carefully warming the foliage from dark, bluish green in the background to warm, spring-green foreground to create the illusion of sunshine. The center flower is depicted in sharp focus, with a variety of warm and cool pinks and reds used to hint warm sun-lit parts and cooler shadows and folds. The background is painted wet-in-wet with very limited detail, and the soft focus of it serves to direct the eye of the viewer to the center flower. I used mostly texture and color variations to add interest in the background area and prevent it from getting boring.
