# 53 New Year Flowers!
I am extremely pleased with this picture as I completed it in 20 mins...for the 20 Min. Challenge, and it has come out the way it should! The vase is a favourite...a cut glass one which I got at my wedding many many years ago, and to bring the New Year in this year I filled it with bright pink gladioli! I find the 20 min challenge has helped me hugely in developing and improving my painting skills. I have learnt to focus on what are the essential bits in a picture, concentrate on that and not spend too much time on unnecessary detail. It suits my style as well, and possibly my personality too.....as I like an impressionist kind of picture, painted quite wet, and don't seem to have the patience to spend time on too much close detail!!!!!
