Spring Flowers, both 6 x 8

Gary was out boating.  Deb was I borrowed their backyard and Noelle and I spent a quiet hour painting this.  So many flowers happen in the Spring and I want to paint them all....probably won't happen, but I'd love to stop time for a bit to do it.

Nancy's Rhodie began in fog which burned off before I was finished so I had to readjust everything for sun.  I didn't draw for either of these pieces, preferring to just use burnt sienna to block in some shadow shapes and then carve out the color and light as I went along.  For me it makes for a more intuitive approach to painting.

Both were fun and quick.
