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.
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.
