#351: Floral 351

Another one for the April floral art show. After experimenting with 3D medium I learnt that when I paint the whole thing 3D, it doesn't look 3D at all. The trick is to selectively paint 3D and leave some elements of the painting 2D. This is a good example.

A late night creation fit between commissioned work. These loose palette knife pieces are therapeutic after hours of detailed brush work on other paintings. The colors always cheer me up and remind me that my garden will bloom.. well.. any day now!
