I think I've mentioned before that my favorite flower to paint is sunflowers...   They are a hearty flower with a universal graphic appeal.  But generally speaking?  White flowers are also fascinating.  Doesn't matter what kind...  It's the challenge of the brightness and the lack of any obvious petal color...and I feel like I've only barely scratched the surface of the many fun and different ways to portray white flowers.


  1. I think you portrayed the white flower "perfectly" Diane. I am in awe of anyone who paints flowers. I've tried but it doesn't work for me. The flower pops right out with the darker background ..well done!
