Gerbera


I had fun with this painting. The experimental beginning included ink drawings to find the composition that was most interesting, and then working the design to establish a light dark pattern. After all of these details were worked out I then began to paint. It was a lot of fun and I felt that I acheived a better palette and a more cohesive composition.

It is a great composition, Linda. Terrific job on those daisies, too. The dark shadows are a lovely contrast to the bright yellow greens. One of my favorites!

Thank you, Virginia. I have been studying the work of Polly Hammett and learned a great deal. Check out her work!
