An Oil Painting of a Still Life of Snowball Flowers and Tangerines

"Still Life with Tangerines"
9" x 12"
oil on Raymar canvasboard
These flowers are snowballs.  To me, they look like mini-hydrangeas.  Had fun painting this one as my iPad camera shot interpretted the backdrop as purple, and the still life set-up backdrop was green.  I liked the purple.  It was a nice compliment to the green and orange, so I painted from my iPad image with the opportunity of looking at the actual still life set-up for further ideas.
