My first floral portrait!

today I played a little Monet and went into my garden in search for a motive. I never painted flowers before and thought to challenge myself. I was never drawn to paint flowers, I always thought that this kind of job belongs to a group of old lady weekend painters. But I was in for a big surprise, I really like that kind of thing.
The only annoying interruption I had came from  a bunch of horseflies biting me in the back.

Wintertime when Sweden is loaded with snow and ice I plan to return to the studio and do some more flower still live paintings.

  1. Hey Eckhardt, like you I'm not much of a flower painter, but you did a really nice job on this one.... Don't get too comfy painting those flowers though, unless you plan on smoking cigars and drinking beer while doing it, Ha!

  2. Hi Steve,
    oh man I am happy to hear from you! How are you doing, long time no see! Thanks for the comment, I am looking forward in wintertime to spend some time with still life painting. Right now I decided not to spent a single day in the studio and work only plein air.
