A busy week, hard to keep on top of all the artists jobs to do, including this one!

I am lucky that my Mum supplies me with great flowers to paint, like these 🙂

I decided to paint outside again as the natural sunlight works well on a still life especially flowers. I started early so there was only a little patch of sun on the lawn and had to move the flowers at least 5 times chasing the sun around the garden! But it worked out nicely.

I didn’t paint the colours of the table or the shape as I wanted it soft and undefined – making the flowers as focus.
I used thick paint towards the end as the subject seams to lend itself to oils and juicy brush strokes.
