OPEN ORANGE FLOWER


I thought this flower was pretty simple and just dying to be painted...
I do not digitally manipulate photos - I actually use a photo and paint from it...
I use a separate painting program to paint my digital paintings NOT paint shop pro.
Just thought I would throw that in for informational purposes...lol
I like simple flowers - to be honest they are easier to paint...the more complicated the more
complex it becomes for me....I do not use those wacom tablets...have not had the money to buy
one yet...so I have to use my mouse and short cut buttons to do it all...
I like the orange in this one - I thought it might be a poppy but I am not sure!
I like simple backgrounds because that way the flower becomes the focus...
anyway - this is my entry today for CED...
Quite pleased with myself..lol
BTW--thanks for all the comments - they really lift up my spirits and that encourages me
to continue on creating...so you all are my blessing in all of this!
Thanks for stopping by and Looking!!!

Can't wait for spring to arrive! This fresh green in the background and the red in front is such a great, refeshing combination.
How long do you need to paint one flower? Sounds like quite some time. I probably wouldn't have the patience for it ;) Keep on going with your goals! Smiles, Anke ;)

So pretty!! It is a California poppy - I have them in my wildflower garden! :)
