ORANGE DAISIES #6
The gerbera daisies that I bought are still fresh and beautiful...hopefully I can get a few more paintings from them. The pitcher was difficult to paint. The position of the handle had to be painted again and again until it looked believable. I have been working directly laying in the paint without an underpainting. The transparent pitcher made defining the handle even more difficult. I worked the background darker and darker until the flowers and pitcher began to take form. I probably worked it a little too much. I prefer to keep the colors very clean. All in all I was satisfied when I decided it was done.

I have a tendency to overwork a painting and this was an attempt to limit brushstrokes and to work quickly and deliberately...... ...
