Painting #72 - Black-eyed Susies


My Black-eyed Susies have increased a lot this year and I always have to paint them each year as they are one of my favorite flowers.
This year I was trying a new background.  Trying being the key word.  More trying necessary, but I always learn something doing this.  I am out of mask-it so I had to use gouache on the rays and they look so dull!
Mistakes are so great for learning.

Hi Teri, these flowers are like little suns with the centerpoint in the middle. I love you background. Although it glows it still lets flowers shine :). Thanks, Irina
