This month, I took a one day workshop with Oksana Zhelisko to paint flowers from live. I love flowers, but I had been avoiding painting them. Therefore, it was my first time to paint them, also to use a round canvas. Since no ideal cutting flowers were available from my own garden, I went to pick up a bouquet on the way as you can see below – red roses and pink lilies.
I struggled so much that it took me 3 days to finish. They are not an easy subject to paint in my opinion, but on top, I had “design” the right composition which added another layer of challenge. At the end, I am happy about the result, but I would much prefer staying with human faces!
