project 6 – Manet late flower paintings

I’ve looked through a book of flower paintings by Manet and used these as a starting point for some collages:-

Now I’ve just finished an oil sketch of some flowers from the garden. My aim was to paint fairly swiftly and capture the intensity of the colour (hence the dark background) and suggest the shape of the flowers.
