Blue Hyacinth in Old Bottle

Blue Hyacinth in Old Bottle
Oil on linen mounted on MDF
There was something about the new spring flower in the old worn bottle that appealed. I was playing around with backgrounds and I felt a yellow to compliment the blue would be nice, so I grabbed whatever was in the immediate vicinity which happened to be a couple of rough self portrait sketches in red chalk on acidic yellow note paper. I kind of liked the composition with the jagged corners and acidic colour fighting against the delicacy of the blue flower. Not sure if it works or not really...
