“Purple Tulip” – flowers are such beautiful natural things.
I like painting flowers because it allows me to explore a lot of color combinations that may not work as well with another subject (e.g. a purple and green cat). I like that the shape of flowers is somewhat forgiving and they seem to make good practice pieces. In this flower I was working on the shape and richness of the petals. I also included some purple/blue in the leaves to tie the picture together. And I did a bit of shadowing, which may be hard to see in this photo. I think I need to work on my camera skills as well.
