Oils on canvas board 12" x 10"
Quickly did this little one last night in poor light and alla prima! Quite pleased with it - I like elements of it, like the background and the pot. I think I am learning with backgrounds, but now I would like to improve on painting flowers.
Breaking things down into elements, focussing on one part at a time is much easier than worrying about a large problem. You just have to nibble away bit by bit until finally there is no problem at all. When I paint I try to improve one part at a time until I am confident with it, then I focus on another element. It works for me.
