More paintings...

This was the last of my beveled canvases that I have had for a long time so I am glad I finally used them. This was a floral that didn't get painted over but it got worked and worked and finally after adding the white over the red flowers I liked it even though as I am looking at it online my light source is wrong. Maybe I will fix it and repost it later. I have to let them sit for a few days and see if it is finished. I am still working on glass. It's pretty tricky.

These are called drip trees and Bob Burridges taught us to do this in his landscape class. They are fun to paint.  Not much control here. That's what I think is hard about Burridge's painting style, It's controlled chaos. So far I have the chaos part perfected. I might try some more of these. This one is actually a big one.  I added some Nova Color fluorescent paint to the edges of the trees to make it have intense backlighting but I don't want it to look like it's a forest fire. It might be too much so again, I have to sit with this one for a few day and decide later whether to tone it down.
