This is a 16 x 20 canvas with pastel on compressed charcoal. This piece is called ” flower in vase on compressed charcoal”. This piece is the second complementary piece for the flowers on black triptych set. I feel this piece is a wonderful opposite side piece.
In this piece I chose to use the same yellows from the first part of the triptych yellow flower, and I also used some of the blue tones from the blue flower. As you look at this piece I feel it balances the entire triptych beautifully, so beautiful in fact it almost creates a Penta triptych. As I looked over all these pieces together it was absolutely beautiful.
The yellow from this beautifully complements the yellow flower as well as the blue flower, and the bluebird beautifully complements the blue flower. This leaves the center with the beautiful pink and black’s of the pink flower frame stunningly surrounded by complementary colors and creating a beautiful centerpiece.
As I looked over the entire set I felt that it creates such an exquisite look is a set and considering the two complementary pieces are meant to be off to the sides of the original triptych I think this could be a wonderful set for the right room.
This is what the triptych with the two complementary pieces looks like. As you can see the yellow from the vase beautifully complements the yellow flower, while the bluebird beautifully complements the blue flower and even the vase. After looking at all of the different images your eye is drawn to the center with the pink flower which has a nearly flawless bed of charcoal in black. If you notice each other bed of black has some tone of color or wind lines like the two flowers opposite the pink flower. This is done purposely to create a distinct variation around the pink flower helping to draw your eye to the center of the images.
