Salma wanted her bouquet painting to be very neutral, emphasizing the blush pink from the orchids in her bouquet. She loved the ribbon effect from one of my previous paintings, so that became the background here as well.
The other flowers used in the painting are roses and peonies. White flowers do tend to antique when pressed, which adds a lot of depth to the paintings and for Salma, it helped bring out the neutral colors she wanted incorporated.
This painting was done on a 16x20 inch canvas, and will hang horizontally.
