original flower painting

My daily small paintings give me an opportunity focus on learning different aspects of painting. This morning I focused on creating dimension. Sometimes it comes naturally, and sometimes I can’t make it work. I feel like there’s something about it that doesn’t always click with me. Maybe it’s the warm/cool thing, which I can’t always clearly see. Maybe it’s transitional values that challenge me. Not sure. But I think it worked in this one. And I also focused on putting down a brush stroke and leaving it, not moving the paint around on the canvas. Success!

This original 6″x6″ oil painting is available, framed, at The Studio Art Gallery New Hope.
