Daily Painting

This was a colorful bunch found by my driveway yesterday morning. I love Parrot Tulips: their attitudes, colors and wavy lines of the leaves and flowers. I am proud that I finished this study today in one sitting (OK, I actually finished it in one DAY as I cannot sit for long and usually don't sit while painting)! 

Warm Reflections

Almost done with this painting. I am finishing details this week, then putting this painting aside for entry into a juried show. I am entering two paintings into the IWS show this year, hoping to get at least one of them accepted. This is the 2nd of my entries.

I am happy with the warm color scheme here and the feeling of warm reflections from the African cloth that were displayed on the wood tabletop under the flowers. I was trying to emphasize the reflections (and mood of the cloth) and not the obvious subjects. However, I did fall in love with the oranges quite early in this game. What I need to do now is lightly wrap this one up as I am on the verge of overworking this watercolor.
