Did this one over the weekend. It felt good to get back on the canvas and paint something, I'll try to keep the flow going and do a few each week. The weather is getting better and I'm craving to do some landscapes but my nose is stuffy with allergies at the moment, so it may be a few days before I can survive outside haha
Flowers tend to give me a hard time for some reason. Although, I do like aspects of this one but there's always something about it.. maybe the lack of darker values that I'm not used to but when I was looking at it - there weren't any darker values and I feel it would destroy the flower - although the background could be darker? I'm still working on subtle value changes and becoming more sensitive to those. Hope you enjoy it, either way.
My favorite item at the moment is this red bottle that I recently picked up, so of course I had to paint it again. It's a challenge to paint but tons of fun [when I get it right lol]. This painting, along with many others, is up for sale on my Etsy Shop for those wondering if I sell my work. You can find it here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/schaeferart
