Modern Florals by Melanie Pruitt

After a customer requested a modern floral iris painting to match my "Hydrangea's" painting, I decided to try another set painted with the same palette. "Sweet Peas" and "Morning Glories" are both painted with the same 3 main colors - Ultramarine Blue, Rhodonite Pink and Sugilite Genuine, which is a natural pigment from South Africa. It's a rare opaque mineral that ranges from grayish lavender to pink to deep purple and it has a slight graphite sheen.

These two paintings are available individually in my Etsy shop The Creators Palette, but they would also make a great pair of paintings - especially in a french cottage decor!

Thanks for visiting the VAST Team blog!
