Poppies, orchids, calla lilies: almost fail-dot-com

These are flowers I'm having a hard time painting. The pix here are taken from my 'book of trials' - so aptly named, I think!!!
A first attempt at a many-petaled poppy.
... getting there
An orchid that that's found in my garden. Except
that it's purple-and-white.
I really want to paint this flower, but I'm not quite there yet.

'Why 'blue', ma?' I can hear my daughter asking!!!
Because I have lots of extra blue ;)

... another try.


  1. These flowers aren't just beautiful, they have a glow too.
