Good lesson in color. I painted a first version and that didn’t work. The neutral tones are beautiful. Some of the petal patterns work. Others I could do over. Not to happy about the brown dots either.
Oh, but I’m happy that I was able to paint. I mixed color and moved from one idea to the next. Sure I thought of the beauties I see on my walks but I was simply painting with no particular place to go. I was painting like Carrie Schmitt at the painting party. It felt good to squeeze the paint on the plate and mix colors. The leaves are beautiful but feels like they need a little more life.
No, these blooms aren’t going in the shop but I painted them. This is the beginning of many more blooms to paint.
