These mums are called Flamingo. They're a new kind, and they are deep pinky salmon with orangy centers. Now that I've uploaded it I can see glare in the middle of the photo - apologies. I'll try again tomorrow, hopefully with better light.
I thought this would be a tedious painting, but it turned out to be downright joyful to paint! I loved the way the depth just kind of evolved, loosely, with various leaves and stems. Normally I'd overwork this part, but somehow I didn't feel the need to!
We did value studies in class today - SUCH a valuable lesson, no matter HOW long you've been painting!Pin It
