I normally paint flowers a lot less. But they sure give an opportunity to use many colors. Today I went on painting with just a general idea but didn’t want to plan too much. Just stayed spontaneous. It helped that I had a good paper.
I had decided I would exaggerate the purple color in this one. So I chose simple shapes to paint bushes full of purple azaleas. But try as I might, I ended up with my normal style. I need to let loose even more!
After seeing the beauty of the Willapa Bay in Oregon, I just had to paint the magnificence of nature that my eyes couldn’t get enough of. In every direction I looked, I was reminded of the holy principle working on this earth.
Lately I am getting obsessed with painting the indoor light. This flower arrangement was a great subject because I could aim to paint what glows and what stays in the background.
