Flower Power-Dahlias

Close ups

Oil on 6x6 canvas panel.

This is my contribution to this week's WDE at Wet Canvas. Susan was the hostess who supplied this great reference photo! Thanks, Susan!!

I was really tempted to do one of the doggies that were pictured, but I forced myself to get into a more uncomfortable zone. Namely flowers. I was encouraged by the waterlilies of last week, so I tried the dahlias. I used the painting knife once more. I also pushed the color.

Thanks for looking and commenting!

  1. Dean, you did a great job of the flowers, outside your comfort zone as they are. Love the colors!

  2. Awesome decision on using the complement color for the background, Dean. Really brings the drama to these beauties.

  3. Strong, beautiful colors set this apart, Dean. Cannot tell they are outside your comfort zone.

  4. Gorgeous! What light, what composition! You are great artist!
