I love painting flowers and I love Amaryllis. Found this beauty ready to bloom at my local grocery store. I kept saying I was going to paint it – for days. Today, I attempted a painting from the beauty itself. It wasn’t easy and I am not pleased with the result. I wish I could paint it looser. The middle of the flower with the stamen and the white center which was further away than the red tips of the petals – well all tough for me to paint. I am going to sketch it tomorrow to see if I can get a clearer understanding of how the flower itself is constructed – the middle, of course. Maybe it will be easier in black and white.
I am so enjoying looking at all the art work. Check out the challenge at: https://www.saetastudio.com/30-in-30-blog
