Yellow Mums {a new small painting}

Yellow Mums

Yellow Mums

{4" x 6" (10.2 x 15.2 cm) – oil on linen panel}
Unframed painting: $100.00 + S&H

It was late in the afternoon when I began this painting, so the light was coming in at a low angle, catching the glass rim with brillant highlights and the rest of the jar coming across as being very dark.

The mums were also mainly in shadow, however the shadows were glowing gold with the light filtering through the yellow petals.
