One of my favourite things about painting flowers is their shapes. Soft, rounded edges. Dips and curves. The way the light changes the colour of a petal. Sometimes I get so caught up in the feeling of my brush waltzing on the canvas that I stray away from the original shape, colour, size , whatever that a flower may have and wander off on my own flights of fancy.
If you’re wondering – this painting is based on a yellow wildflower called “Cinquefoil”.
