Painting #69 - Gallardia

The Gallardia are blooming around here and I just had to paint one.
I am laughing at myself painting all these blooms when one of my goals was to improve landscapes.  I think my 'self' is trying to tell me something.
However, I am getting more comfortable using yellow.
And, I learned something from yesterday; I cropped it closer and it looks better.  Thanks.

I agree, yellow is so tricky. You never know when it will jump like a blob and stop glowing. I found that using less yellow and leave more white paper to glow through is much more benefiting :)
Thanks, Irina (www.IrinaSztukowski.com)

Teri, This is a great picture....and I love the background. I use yellow sparingly, but I find a very watery wash of lemon yellow, certainly does add light to landscapes.
