On the Easel - Two Large White Florals

Maybe it has something to do with the weather with all that snow all around us, but right now I am into the many shades of white. Inspiration out my studio window! I have two large white florals on the easel right now.  One is a full sheet watercolor.  The other is a 36” x 36’ acrylic.  They are very different paintings these two.  The similarity ends at white.  The watercolor although painted with saturated colours is softer, a bit romantic.

The acrylic, well is very bold.  In this version the yellow background is eye popping.  I have since begun to redden it up.  Not entirely sure, but the background may go almost black by the time it is finished.
