I’m not even sure how long it’s been since I’ve painted flowers… over a year probably. More’s the pity; once I got into this painting, I realized how much I was enjoying the challenge. And it is a real challenge – in theory, it’s difficult to paint anything well, but some things are more difficult than others. For me, portraits are the hardest, but florals are probably a close second… a good reason to paint some more.
