The shadow was really strange and awkward to capture. First I had it really dark, then lightened it. Light was shining through the glass bottle. The background is a cloth with a chinese type of pattern. But the flower turned out.
There is something exhilarating about painting – the whole creative process, the learnings and the discoveries, and always – the challenges.

I share my journey with this blog as I stretch myself with the exhuberant intention of painting daily.
