100 Paintings in 100 Days Challenge
'Inspirations from a Back Yard'

'Rose of Sharon'
6 x 6

Day 82

I did this painting for the Daily Paintworks 'Nature's Arrangement
Challenge'.  The instruction was to paint some flowers plein air using
a very limited palette of one blue, one red, one yellow and
white.  You were to use only a large, medium and small paintbrush
and you had to stop after painting for one hour and call it
'done'!  This worked out well for me because it also fulfilled
my own '100 Paintings in 100 Days Challenge - Inspirations from a
Back Yard' Challenge, and also provides me with a new
plein air painting to post on the SVPAP blog - and most of
all was just a lot of fun to paint.  Can't ask for better!!!

If you would like to see more of my work,

interested in purchasing any of my paintings you see

Hi Claire - this was so nice to quickly click on the SVPAP link on the DPP blog and comment on your post. Lovely painting - I have really enjoyed following your challenge online.

You managed to get some lovely vivid colors with such a limited palette. Great job!


Beautiful "eye-popping" colors and contrast and it is unmistakenly a Rose of Sharon blossom.
