Still Life Flowers, 1968

Heavy impasto oil with palette knife & brush on Masonite board, 38" x 54". Nowhere is it so clear, so illustrated as in this painting of flowers in a vase on a table, Schwaderer's First Law -- "Never only one color". He mixed all his pigments on the brush and applied them vigorously without pre-mixing them on the palette. Never is there only one color in any given area of this or any other of his paintings; all local color is mixed with reflected light from many sources, in addition to the primary light source.
