Sunny Marigolds Oil Painting

I just got these pretty marigolds last week, and sat down today to paint the little bouquet I made and photographed on my turquoise shed bench.

I’m reasonably happy with how it turned out (particularly the glass vase), but I’m planning to try to paint just a single marigold later this week to see if I can figure out how it’s done.

I get SO lost when I’m trying to paint flowers, and I guess the only way to get better at it is to simplify and practice until I get the trick of it.

More marigolds may be on the way!
