OUT OF MY COMFORT ZONE - 3

Since it had been a while since I completed the other two panels, I was worried I would not get a good match on colors but I took my time and constantly referred to the other two panels and got them matched well.

I began working on the background flowers, not sure they were turning out right, but not unhappy with the initial result.


I then brought the large flower into focus as I had done with the other two paintings.

Then it was time to paint the bee, and tweak the painting.

Looking good to me, Deb. I love that little bee flying in towards the flower. Hope to paint with you and Sharon Thursday :)

Been having trouble posting comments of late - typed a long message for this lovely piece of work and then it would not send. So day's on trying again as I love it so. Brave strong background and I love the little blooms in the distance. I usually do my sunflowers much more yellow but I simply love the soft tones and colours you have put into the petals.

Rhonda, we look forward to that!
Joan, I know what you mean about commenting - that happens to me frequently - very frustrating. Thanks for persevering - and for your lovely comments.
Kimberly, good to hear from you!
