Oil on Canvas
8 x 10 inches
Finding a subject is both exciting and frustrating. In this case I was once again clueless on what I was going to paint but I decided that I would find it with in a small area. I searched around and had several possibilities. The big problem was the abundance of green, all the same shade.
Then I saw this weird flower all by itself hidden behind several branches of over grown privet. I moved the branches and tied one back to get a better view of the flower.
I worked fast because the mosquitoes were very active. I tried to keep the focus on the flower and rely on contrast over color to get the painting.
