I flew though painting this floral piece. I’ll have to step back and critique it another day. Keeping up with the challenge is, well…challenging. Have to put a lot on hold, but it is a wonderful experience. This must be my 5th round. As with any subject, painting it really gets one to look closely at the subject and one gets to know it quite well. As for me, my challenge is then to not get caught up in all the detail, but try to get the essence onto the paper.
