Still Life In Blue and White

This still life was painted using fake flowers and so it was a bit difficult altering the color of the flowers so that they didn't look too yellow. Wanted a more delicate off-white. I really love some of the still life paintings by William Merritt Chase. Also admire the old Flemish still lifes but would personally like to paint more loosely....I haven't done many floral paintings in oil--have mostly worked with watercolors over the years and painted people so need to be a bit patient with myself.
