A Little Painting of Pansies
Well, lesson 4 is done....or at least done for today. This simple little painting was surprisingly difficult. First, I've never done flowers...at least in still life...so that was a challenge. And then, I didn't really like the arrangement. I didn't feel any excitement or energy and I think the finished painting reflects that: it's dull and flat. Once again, there were many lessons learned here, some of them hard won. In the end, I've glad it's over and I'm ready to move on.
UPDATE: I worked on this little painting again. I'm still not satisfied, but I think it is somewhat improved. Oh well, time to move on!
