Painting #68 - Succulent For Critique
The reference photo below is from a friend and I used the painting for Cactus Monday.
I like the painting and LOVE that cobalt blue. I see a love affair coming with that shade of blue. This is the first time I have blended three colors together. Each petal was done separately using cobalt blue, yellow ochre and rose.
I also know the colors are not the same but I like my colors, one of those artist license things.
What bothers me is the background. I wanted the plant to 'pop' more and have more texture. I was on the way to overworking it so I quit painting.
Have at it ladies!
I know I will appreciate anything you have to offer.
