Cherry Blossoms


I was a little unsure about the composition on this one,
but I do find it interesting to look at, it keeps
my attention. Not sure how to describe this, but I like
my paintings to have an Immediate center of interest,
and then a True center of interest-
an unexpected
it isn't as obvious, but draws you back to it
over and over again. For me that place is the
two little buds to the left.

Alisa, these look beautimous! I love those two little buds on the left, too! Nice job!

You succeed in painting the nature of these blossoms. They bloomfor a fleeting few days and then they are gone! Also I tink you have a good command of your blues and greens.

Galina, Lauren, Marie, thanks for looking and commenting!

those greens are hard sometimes! I need to remember to add more burnt sienna in the mix next time.
