This is Memorial Park in Omaha again. Every year they plant this group of flowers along Dodge St. I don't know what they are called but they are very tall and bloom for a long time.
Blocking in the main areas of color. I find that sometimes if I just concentrate on blocking in the values and color the painting is 90 percent complete before any details are added.
My wonderful wife /photographer/painting companion snapped this photo of me and my home made pocade box in action.
The thing I like about these gardens is their simplicity and the space they left for you to walk or in my case paint around them.
I can't think of anything better than spending time with my wife and painting beautiful flowers. What a wonderful life.
