Vinca - Experiments With Color

Here's an experiment with Vinca flowers. Haven't painted much purple/blue... I might be leaning too far into red but it's okay for now. Just trying to get down shapes and veins and everything else going on in this little flower.

You know what's cool here? It's getting to know the subject--looking closer and beginning to notice subtleties. I stop worrying about outcome and just get into the details.

I figure that daily practice with these flowers, and leaves soon to come, will leave me in good stead.

This evening's play worked from top to bottom.


  1. I actually really like this test piece as is- as a finished piece!

  2. Like a little border or a bookmark... I have a quiet day leaving time for exploration. Nice...
