Inventing...

Like my last post...when you work from photographs it can be a bit daunting if the picture is not the greatest...in either composition, color or lighting...but you can always make a composite of several photographs and take the best from each to "invent" your own composition for your painting...which is exactly what I did for this piece "Rosy Cheeks", 14"x13".

Wonderful, Annelein. I often combine photographs. Love the challenge. I fondly remember the peonie workshop I took from you.

Your flower pieces are always superb, Annelein. Oh to have your talents!

Hi Annelein. I like the effect you achieve, painting small sections with thin glazes and not blending - very attractive.

one of my favorite color harmonies too, reds and greens. I love how you mix it up with cool and warm.
Beautiful painting.
