Pretty difficult for me to resist painting the blooms of the white azalea. These flowers were meant to be captured in watercolor! This painting is right on the heels of me completing “Lighter Shade of Pale” white-ish roses. And will be followed up with a poured painting of white lilies with fuchsia centers. More on that later! I want to feel completely comfortable with capturing all the nuance of painting white flowers before I attempt the next poured painting.
I have to admit, this piece seems to be working up faster than the roses – the degree of difficulty is the rendering is less and the petals are larger. And, of course, I am feeling more confident with my color choices.
So, I am about a third of the way through. This painting will pack a surprise as it develops. Stay tuned!
