Alstroemeria - SOLD



A stem of alstroemeria in a shot glass. These were richly-coloured and fun to paint. I took a picture at the blocking in stage just to show process. I enjoy seeing the path of other people's work so thought I might start showing some stages in mine. Happy Tuesday.

Wow, these blooms have always been a challenge so daunting, I have never tried to paint them! You did a wonderful job!

My favourite bit is the distortion of the stem in the water - nice piece.

So much strength in your color palette choice Kim. Liked seeing your 2 stages. Really can feel the water in the glass. ..nice!

This is so beautiful Kim! You've given those flowers so much presence, and the glass is just awesome. I love how you paint glass and reflections.

And I really love seeing the work in progress. Coolness :)

I like the underpainting almost as much as the finished piece! Is this a bush or a plant? Beauty!

Thanks for sharing your beginning with us. I love seeing how it evolved into the final piece. I love the cool blue against the top of the flowers, too!
