Oil painting of a mum

Posted on Updated on

10 by 8 inches, oil on hardboard

Here is a dark red mum with pink highlights. I aimed for lots of variety in the brushstrokes to describe these sturdy petals, leaves, and buds.

    Love that you casually laid it on a table. Love the light and colors. You captured the “sturdiness” of it perfectly. Really a lovely painting.:)
