The scenery was so beautiful and the photographs turned out so well that I did a blog post on them. I also posted some on Facebook which prompted a friend to suggest I do a painting of one of the photographs. My nemesis is daisy shaped flowers, I cannot figure out how to paint them. I make a mess no matter which way I try them so I wasn't too keen to attempt another painting of this type of flower. Then again, I did love the original photograph:
So I tried again. This one's for you, Joanne.

I didn't like the way the flowers and leaves turned out so I cut the bottom third of the painting off and I added in more daisy shapes to fill in the spaces. I also added the white petals yesterday because the yellow blended in too well with the green background.
Much better this way!
Of course, I could cut all the flowers out of the picture & wind up with a very pretty and simple landscape:
Yup, that looks really good to me! Now where did I put those scissors...
