Day 30

Oil on Canvas
5 x 7
Confession time: this is actually the first poinsettia I painted. With this one,
however, I used a silk flower. Whereas in the grouping I posted yesterday,
 I used real flowers. The real flowers have almost twice
as many petals (or I should say bracts) as the silk ones making it much
harder to simplify. Question for the day, when you first saw this
could you tell it was painted from a fake flower?
Side note, this simple looking teapot was a dickens to paint!


  1. It doesn't look fake to me.....has a soft feel to it.
