Painting #17 and 18 - Angel Trumpet
Two years ago we went to Maui and discovered Angel Trumpet Blooms with their wonderful fragrance and huge size. Perhaps because we are all from Wisconsin we were totally amazed at the size of these flowers, nothing grows that big there.
I used a photo reference of my grand smelling this huge bloom.
I thought I knew how to paint hair.
The peachy color of this flower was so difficult for me to get.
Since I wasn't thrilled with this painting I decided to try just a flower (below).
I have discovered when I am disappointed in a painting I need to do it again from a different viewpoint and that's what I did here.
Gosh, I even used that rigger again. It's so great for those small areas.
