What a lovely way to start my day. Thank you all for taking the time to look and comment.
Karen, Take them one petal at a time (OPT) and they get finished nicely. Then you add shading and shadows and finish up with a flower.
Char, As you said when I showed the photo I took this from, there are a couple more paintings in the bunch that I may get around to doing later.
Katherine, I enjoyed the different stages each of the flowers was in. It was a bit of a challenge to get them looking right.
Karl, I seldom paint in the high key mode, but somehow this painting seemed to call for it.
Thanks for the kind words Darla, Pat, Doug, Debra, Carlos, Reikiart, Tamy, and Pedro.
