Studying Under the Masters - O'Keeffe 2

For my original painting done in the style of Georgia O'Keeffe, I debated between two of her types of images - New York City (my home) and a large flower.  I finally selected this photo of mine and cropped it tightly like Georgia did with so many of hers.

I did this painting completely in Winsor-Newton watercolors on Arches Cold Press 140 lb paper and scanned it on a flatbed scanner.  The color didn't scan well, my paint is much more rosy than it appears here.

 I regularly forget to take photos at various stages during the painting - but this time did take 4 with my cell phone.  Here they are.

Beautifully done, Shirley. Georgia is one of my favorite artists.

Just lovely!

Any chance I could use your picture and try one of my own??
