Bucket of Blossoms

May 30, 2018

Bucket of Blossoms – Oil on Canvas – 12″ x 16″

A scene from a summer plein air expedition was my inspiration. That display was a bucket suspended from and old metal headboard in a garden. The bucket contained a few very small flowers, or perhaps they were weeds. Anyway, they were small, scraggly and a bit unappealing. It was also very shaded.

I decided to use this idea and instead of the metal headboard, I opted to place the bucket on an old wooden fence. I used a small plein air study to work in the flowers. Added the bright  sunshine too.
