Day 12 - 30 Day Challenge

Hydrangea close up
Oil  6x6
 
I approached this painting with great trepidation.  So many petals--so little time, but the more I painted, the more excited I became to see the finished product.  I also discovered that when I click to enlarge a painting on the computer, if I step back from the computer, it looks more like the original painting.  (You all know how I complain about my photography skills--this is the answer.  Maybe my photography is not as bad as I thought).  Did all of you already know that and I'm the last to figure it out.  Same as stepping back in an art gallery to look at paintings.  They have so much more depth from a short distance as opposed to getting right up to the painting to observe.  Of course, if you are studying the artist's technique, you would want to view it up closer. 
 
So remember to take a few steps back.  Have a great day.  Thanks for stopping in today!
