I almost titled this one, "Nature Pushed." These daisies that have been dyed always kind of intrigued me, but I didn't love the unnatural colors. Then it dawned on me that I should work them into a composition. I had fun with the complimentary colors, thus the title. It was also a good opportunity to work with balance and negative spaces. It makes me happy now.

Yes, I am still working on this one. There is so much I like about it, but the details are needing work. I will work on it one more time and then put it away for awhile. I like the scribbles and the calmed down color. It seems appropriate since I was working from a sketch to have it look that way.

I am going to stop for awhile so I can give this one some thought. I like this model's pose. She is so pensive. There may be a figure behind her coming to see if she is okay. I am not that into telling stories with my paintings, but this one kind seems to have something going on.
