Here's the third in my series of gardenia paintings. Go to jackinewell.com
to see the set, they look nice together. Today, I set these poor little babies in the sun to paint them. Bad idea. I blocked the shapes of the blossoms in and then worked on the vase, foreground and background, and by the time I got back to the flowers, the poor little things were drooping and were in completely different places than when I had block in their shapes originally. I had to guess what they looked like while still fresh. "Note to self" -paint the flowers first when they are in the hot sun.
Thanks for viewing my art.
