This is a recent journal study that I painted in warm dominate hues. I included both organic and geometric shapes. I have not yet completed my final painting and I am debating on whether to leave in the vibrant floral arrangement making it the focal point. I originally intended to make the fruit at the bottom of the composition the focal point but got carried away which is a weakness. I am open to any suggestions!
