                                                                 15 x 20 cm Acrylic
This was a done for a drawing event.  Time is limited to two hours.  I went over by 45 minutes.  Exercises like this make you think about getting the image down as quickly as possible. There really isn't much time to dawdle over details and over work the painting.  I never tire of these exercises.  Yes, I could always do more.  But, would that really make a better painting?  Maybe yes....Maybe no.

  1. Hi Barbara, I really like this one. The orchid is absolutely stunning, every detail perfect. The simplicity of the pomegranate shows another side of your talent, limiting the time is a challenge in what you have to leave out, but the imagination can fill it in. Well done!
