Plant (coleus?) from photo taken at the Krohn Conservatory (there were at least 6-7 types of coleus there). Interesting shapes but I did the bg AFTER I painted the plant - not a good plan!
This has some predrawing on it and is on Stonehenge Aqua hot press paper.
After an art friend (Susan Roper) asked what my thinking was on this (she doesn’t know I often just throw paint on paper without thinking?!!), I went back and added some value changes to make this one more interesing, I think. Thanks, Susan!! (I did try to add your blog to my sidebar again but blogger is being finicky and will not allow me to remove or add anything right now - maybe later when it’s over it’s snit.
Anyway, here is the revised version of this one. Darkened and shaped the leaves more in every one, lifting some of the lighter colors.
