Alstroemeria



My Alstroemerias are blooming in the back yard; I decided to try painting one... I know the reason that I stay away from painting flowers; they end up feeling to me like paint- by-numbers paintings. They don't have the free feeling that painting landscapes has for me. Never the less, I have pushed myself and posted the finished result.

I think they are beautifully done - they don't look stiff at all, actually you've really achieved a good balance of line and loose!!

Thanks you Guys! I think it's just that I don't feel like I can do them justice...

That's so funny...I'm so much more comfortable with flowers than landscape. It's great that we're all different. But these flowers look just right and don't look too stiff to me. The colors are really nice too.
