TMC #8

The flowers were picked from the flower bed outside my door.  I think they are crysanthemums.  I get so tickled because the first thing I zoom in on are things I would change, such as the water line.  It is a little lopsided.  I wonder what would happen if I took the time to sketch the bowl first? 

What do I like about this?  I like the freshness  and the variety of yellows in the flowers.  I didn't take the time to paint or shape the petals so they look like any flower rather than crysanthemums.  I have to admit that this is the way I enjoy painting flowers, so that is what I learned today.

Sometimes the lack of perfection works well when you want a spontaneous, energetic painting.

Ok..I am SO getting tempted to join in this exercise.

Thank you for stopping by, Maragret.

Micah, have you succumbed to the temptation to join?
