Happy Orange

I took the picture for this painting at the zoo. I'm sure people thought I was crazy, taking close-up photos of the landscaping rather than the lions and bears. Once I began painting it, for some strange reason I reverted to my old method of dark to light. It seemed much to dark in the end, so I did it over, with this result. I am much happier.

It couldn't be better! I just love these flower things you're doing, especially this one, and I'm not even that crazy about flower paintings. You've changed my mind- LOVE!

Gorgeous...I would have been snapping a photo of this too! Love the almost crown like center of this one...Wonderful color for the background.

All these beautiful roses and flowers you have been painting just take my breath away. Such beautiful strokes and colors. Really nice Carol!

All your flowers are lovely Carol! I like the teal and lavender and orange half way down on the right. Beautiful!

When you say the old way..you mean instead of starting with your "island" or protected area?
