Big Bouquet!


Big Bouquet, 16 x16 inches, soft pastel on Wallis.

I was further inspired by flowers from the garden. I don't particularly like Asiatic lilies in the flowerbed...but in the vase they're irresistible! This may have been the most fun I've ever had painting. I'll definitely be painting more flowers. Why haven't I done this before?

I'm going to try and get a better photo--this one is a bit dark. This piece is so bright, it's downright gaudy!

  2. Wonderful painting Kim. I am waiting for my roses to start flowering to try some ideas out with flowers. I thought of buying some when on a shopping trip nearly a week ago but the poor things didn't look very good. Seeing this work of yours has me thinking that I should look at more than roses. :thumbsup:
