Dogwood by Margaret Aycock
I usually like to paint flowers transparently first and then work with opaque paint. For this painting I tried only using opaque paint and I really like the way it turned out. I was afraid that I wouldn't be able to achieve the appearance of a transparent paper thin petal without transparent paint.... so I guess I was wrong. I have this in my ebay store along with many other daily paintings. Just click on the daily painting tab after going to my store at http://midwest-fine-art.com I also have some instructional DVDs there ( I teach adult painting workshops ) and lots of full size oil paintings.
