Flower Paintings – a Triptych in Acrylic

Three Flower Paintings on Small Canvas – a Triptych

Three Flowers – a Triptych

What’s a triptych ? Basically , it’s a group of three paintings shown together and sharing aspects of subject matter , colour or style – or all three ! Originally, I think it described three paintings usually above or on the altar in churches. It’s a really popular way of presenting artwork at the moment in galleries and some artists are very creative in the way the pieces are linked together .

Anyway , this is my version of a triptych disguised as floral art. I had to come up with something for an art group I belong to and I was a bit stuck. Then I remembered that I had decided to paint a series of flowers in acrylic on small canvases a while ago , but life got in the way and I had only completed two .

Sunflower
Oriental Poppy

So I decided to paint one more – for the art group theme , a triptych of flowers.

Easy ! One triptych delivered .

I must just mention that I have entered ‘Bluebells’ ( and two other paintings) for an open call for an exhibition .Bluebells was accepted ( hurray ! ) and to my delight, chosen for the publicity image – two reasons to be cheerful, I think !

I do love painting flowers – there’s loads more in my Gallery – ‘Still Life and Flowers’

So, to finish up with, here’s my favourite – going to a new home when my solo exhibition finishes today.

There is all kinds of floral art – on canvas, on paper , in vases , in a landscape , as a triptych or stand alone . I wonder which kind you like best ? Or , do you like them all , like me .

    1. Thanks very much, Inese .I’m really glad you told me about the like button. Hopefully it should be there now. I’m trying hard to get this website the way I need it to be. But I’ve still got such a lot to learn.

    1. Thanks very much, Jenna . I like the way you can paint the shape going over the edges . But I forgot to mention that the canvases are only 8 inches square. I’d really love to paint a floral composition on a large canvas next.

Let me know what you think !
