Laurel's Bouquet Painting
Laurel's bouquet painting was done on a 16x20 canvas using a pale, neutral background. She also had a painting done for her parents, which included a photo of her and her husband (see the post below).
The flowers in Laurel's bouquet consisted of roses, dahlias, peonies, stock, and freesia.
The variety in both style and color made for a very vibrant combination!
Her actual bouquet is pictured here as well, to give you an idea of how the bouquet is transformed once pressed and sealed onto the canvas.
Pressing takes on average 6 weeks, but depends upon the amount of humidity in the air at the time as well as the type of flowers you have selected for your bouquet.
