The Sunny Dahlia
I finished this painting this afternoon. It was started some time ago for a lesson I was teaching at Riverside Art Center. I did two paintings of the same dahlia - one in traditional and one outlined with miskit and poured. I never finished this one. This was the traditional approach. It is 9" x 12" and is painted on 140 lb. cold-pressed watercolor paper. Below is the same dahlia in the poured format and hanging down instead of facing up. I used the same drawing for both.
