For this week we were supposed to employ a loose, relaxed style to paint a vase of flowers. For my reference I kind of cheated and followed a tutorial in a book by Charles Reid. I wish I could come up with something like this on my own!
The first painting went so quickly I had time to start something else. This next one took about 15 minutes and was done from a photo reference my teacher provided. It needs some darker greens in the leaves, but I love how loose and easy it was.
