Amaryllis Study – Jan 9, 2017

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.
