In the spirit of the spring season I am continuing my series of flower paintings while enduring, sneezing, itchy watery eyes and sore throat! Yes, it's all in the news we are having one of the worst allergy season's ever which means I will have plenty of flowers to photograph and paint. A good stock of antihistamines and tissues are on my next shopping list.
This is the second of my Gerbera paintings and still remains one of my favorite flowers next to the Sunflower. Keeping the crop simple without framing actually created more of a challenge for me as my focus went directly to making sure the texture of the brushwork came through on the final image.
Hope you enjoy and Gesundheit!
