CHOOSING A WHITE SUBJECT


I was looking for something mostly white to paint - I don't do architecture so falling back on flowers and organic things. This photo was taken right outside the Quilt Museum in Paducah, Kentucky during our recent vacation trip. Beautifully creamy white petals I'll try to paint keeping everything pale (I hope) until the end.
(Photo by Jerry although I have some of the same flower in the same position, I think Jerry's is more crisp and shows more variety in the pale colors - can you see the warm and cool blushes of color in those petals?)

Thanks so much but I can't take the credit for this one - it's one my husband took. Although I took the same photo at the same place, my little point and shoot is not as good as his DSLR :)
