The Last Dahlias #3
Oil on Linen Panel
7" x 5"
Look at that. I could only go a day without throwing a Chinese lantern in!
I'm pretty happy with the way the dahlias are coming out. Truth be told I'd been avoiding them all summer. So many petals! I wasn't sure I could pull them off in a daily painting. Joe Anna Arnett's method of filling in most of the flower with the inner color and then coming back on top with petal highlights works again!
