Well, I have been working on another white ( :-) peony, but this time with a picture from Wet Canvas. I still have a large petal to paint, but I have fiddled too much with it tonight...I always do when I don't work in daylight. It is certainly no longer white!!! In the last thirty minutes of painting, I covered most of my whites:-( The big petal on the right hand side is too dark and heavy. The petals do not have enough delicacy and are way too colorful. However, I like the buds...The picture was taken with a flash and the colors are not really true. I think that the painting looks somewhat better in real life. Nevertheless, what do you think of it?
I hope that I will be home early enough tomorrow after work to finish it. I think that I am gaining confidence with flowers...I think that I should start a third floral right after this one to keep learning from my errors.
Have a great week, and for all my American friends who have a holiday tomorrow, enjoy!
