Cheery Blossom (12"x12"on canvas board)

Another little flower study on cherry blossums...I seem to get quicker with these, the underpainting wasn't very accuarte, making it a bit confusing for the detail. Nonetheless, it seemed to come out okay. the sky was very blue on the day I took the photo, not a cloud in sight! Still tossing up whether to add a little bumble bee in :)

Thanks to Paula, I added in some clouds!

  1. Yes. That's it. The blue is too, I don't know, flat compared to the extraordinary shadows and details of the blossoms. The blue needs something, maybe a wisp of white even though as you say it was a clear blue sky. I love the blossoms. They are superb. (And there is always room for a bumblebee!!)
