Mari’s Bouquet was commissioned by a special man for his very special wife’s birthday. They were married less than a year ago and he thought it would be a nice gift for his wife to commemorate their beautiful wedding day. I did a lot of background work on this one to help the flowers pop from the foreground. Her bouquet featured pink and white blooms, with sprigs of green and spritzes of pink/raspberry. It was so fun to paint!
This wedding bouquet, called Pinks-and-Greens, was commissioned by a niece-in-law. I’m crazy for pink-and-green combos, so this was a ton of fun to paint. I also love bouquet stems…all smooth and fresh and vibrant. This bouquet was also extra-fun to paint because of the baby’s breath flowers. See how they pop against a green leaf. The others, I added a bit of ambient color to so that you can see them against the white paper.I kept the background the white of the paper rather than adding a wash because it echoes the freshness of the day, the bride’s beautiful gown and an overall crisp feel.

These were the flowers on the wedding tables at Amanda’s wedding. Her mother brought them back to their bakehouse and hosted a party the following day. She put all the flowers on various tables throughout the yard. I couldn’t resist taking photos of the flowers, of course, and then later painted Amanda’s Flowers and gave it to Amanda and her husband for a wedding gift. I like the mat we chose because it kind of looks water-y, just like the Michigan lake where the party was. Click here to contact me about painting a wedding bouquet for you!
