Too, Too Something

Lesson 4 of my online sketch and watercolor class covered flowers. I knew not to use a rose, as they are just problematic for beginners. I went to the only two stores in my area that sold flowers. Other than roses and orchids, there wasn’t much of a selection. I ended up with brightly dyed flowers.

Really pink

Too pink?

The flower isn’t particularly recognizable from my paintings. I’m calling that “an artist’s interpretation.” That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.
