My Inspiration: I was inspired to paint this piece when I began looking at lots of beautiful flowers. I found Georgia O’Keeffes work particularly inspiring.
Plan: I planned this painting by trying it in chalk pastels and water colour first but I felt afterwards that acrylic worked better.
Chosen Medium and Why: I used acrylic on canvas with a pallet knife and a dry brush technique round the outside of the flower.
Painting Experience: It took a while to do as I kept painting over and over it to get different light and dark tones.
My Achievement: I absolutely love the colours and texture I achieved in this painting.
