This looks different. This painting is a repeat version of the previous scene, but this time I just did what I call direct painting. I didn't use any fancy techniques. Just painted it. I could not believe how much difference it made when I looked at the old one beside the new one.
Also, my eyes ain't what they used to be. I saw lots more in the ref photo this time because I used a magnifying glass and saw things entirely differently.
Hope you like it!

Everybody loves my iris one on the group I'm in. I bought some framed prints and
trying to get into those things is a major project, but I have at least got two framed.
I broke the glass on one of them though, so have to get new glass.
This time when I do the hollyhocks, before I begin to paint, I'm going to think carefully
about the entire design. I have just been going with it, not planning that much the end
result. I'm going to do it differently this time.
If I have some time, will work on the oil painting too.

Well, I've been playing around with this all morning.
I learned some valuable lessons. I'm still not totally happy
with it, but a lot happier. One of the things I learned was
not to leave out the RED. It makes it work.
What do you think of this? I think to leave a comment, go

This picture is a little dark for the real thing.

I have worked on this one for awhile. Several days, anyway. I'm not at all happy with it yet.
If anybody has any thoughts or ideas, please comment on this and I will take your ideas into consideration.
Here's the picture.
