Poinsettias Practice 1-4
each 4"x4" oil on a single 8"x8" Raymar panel
I love poinsettias! And we've got a nice one from Christmas that I've been meaning to paint, so today was the day. I meant to do my favorite 10 minute exercise, but these guys are really tough. I wiped the first one, and above are the next four. My first mistake was not doing a thumbnail sketch, which I remedied between number 0 and number 1 (see below for thumbnail). I think it took me more than half an hour to do the first one shown here, and I was probably close to 10 minutes by the time I got to number 4. A very good exercise!
Which one is your favorite?
