Dahlia Pursuit by milbisous Dahlia Pursuit by milbisous
Watercolors on Arches 300lb (640g) CP paper
9” X 12” (23cm X 31cm)


Flowers are not my favorite subjects :( Many times, I’ve wanted to prove to myself I could paint them. But I cannot do it, unless there is...pressure. This was done from a challenge photo on the rookie painter website, deadline is...tomorrow :sprint:

I almost gave up half way through, because my eyes almost went bonkers, first sketching, then painting those crazy petals :dizzy: . I had to keep repeating to myself, that I could do it and here’s the result...

Hope it does not look like “forced labor”, done...under severe stress :D

Thank you for all comments/or favs :bow:
