Florals are something I haven't painted in years, I had the idea that they were a bit old fashioned, but I decided that they were ideal for my intention of doing paintings in a variety of different colors, and in color combinations that I would never usually choose.

The idea with these studies was also to work very loosely with no attempt to create real flowers but just to give the impression of flowers.
I call them my "Posies" an old fashioned name for flower bouquets.
I really enjoyed this exercise and feel I learned a lot. You can see the whole range on my Fine Art America site. What do you think? Are florals old fashioned?
