mess of cosmos


(9x12)
My just-under-the-wire submission to Evhe's August challenge on A Nos Pinceaux.
The reference photo is really nice and contains more lightness and air, which many of the other painters captured ... I feel I got a little heavy-handed here--I perhaps spent too much time on the drawing, leading me to "fill in"--but the photo's so nice, I'm going to try again.

Lovely freedom about this happy painting, doesn't like too tight to me.

Cara Laura, i tuoi fiori esprimono una forza straordinaria, ripetili pure se desideri, ma accogli felice questi con tutto il loro splendore. Molto belli anche i tuoi disegni, continua ad usare matite e colori. è il modo + giusto per esprimersi completamente. Ciao e buon mese di Settembre. Luigi.

It looks fresh and light to me, Laura. Your work on florals always has me envious of your brushwork. Have a wonderful weekend.
