I am always interested in painting flowers. For a long while I painted them up close and large. But with the thirty day challenge of September, I painted only that which I saw in New Mexico. Now I am considering a series of landscapes which include flower gardens. I especially like the flower gardens in the southeastern part of the USA...South Carolina in particular.

I felt by adding more sky the painting would
"open up" more. Though years of study and knowing painting guidelines, intuition is a big part of creating a successful painting for me. How do I feel about it? Do I want the background trees in focus or not?
I still see areas I want to improve as I lost the angle of the flowers on the left that had been correctly placed in the above "defining" stage. Tomorrow this will be finished and will be available on dailypaintworks.com
