Day 16 - 30 Day Challenge

Pink Zinnia
Oil  6x6
 
Good Monday morning!  A bright pink flower to start your week.  I wasn't too sure about all these petals but it was a pleasure to paint.  Only got confused a time or two trying to follow the petal pattern. 
 
When I began this challenge, I had not intended on carrying this theme of close up flowers on a dark background all the way through the 30 days.  However, I'm enjoying painting these so much, I'm now planning on sticking with my theme.  Hope you're liking the theme as much as I am.
 
Have a great Monday and week!
