Hollyhocks

"Hollyhocks"

This weeks Daily Paintworks Challenge is painting outdoors, from life, and flowers. This is the results of the challenge. The challenge this week also had a time limit of one hour, three primary colors: ultramarine blue, cadmium red, and cadmium yellow plus white. Also, one was to use only three brushes: large for blocking in, medium for most of the rest and a small one for the detail. Looking at the above painting, I still will probably soften a couple of edges just a bit....or just leave it so that it stays the result of the challenge.
