I really loved painting this one - the bold colour, deep shadows, and repetitive scoops of petals - all of it was lovely to get lost in. My goal for this painting was to make another flower portrait with a single bloom being the focus. I want my paintings to be as much about people as they are about the garden and this zinnia had so much personality. As I worked my way through all those petals, she seemed to come more and more to life. I hope you like it!
The zinnia is available in my shop!
