I started trying out new compositions that would highlight this orange azalea flower.
I ended up liking the flower in the pot all by its self. I began with a charcoal sketch for the layout. The panel was toned weeks ago and dry so I could jump right into painting.
I was having so much fun I forgot to take progress photos.
SOLDI will use this color study to do a final finished piece for the show in September.
I hope you like it.
