WIP Floral Painting


Well, here is the final version of this still life oil painting by Dottie. She submitted it as her test for the Society of Decorative Painters.

It is interesting to see the first photos and comparing them with this end photo. What an improvement!

The convention was in June and mom got word that she didn't pass. I can't wait to see the reason why!! They send a detailed explaination.
You have to use their line drawing and your own colors. So when you paint, you can not enlarge the pattern at all. It is very difficult for a painter that is used to using a whole wall as her canvas!!

This turned out beautiful. Pass or not, I think this is a winner.
