Geraniums Red and Yellow

8" x 8" x 1.5" Oil on wood cradled panel

A few geraniums from my container garden with a little yellow dahlia thrown in for good measure.

I enjoy painting geraniums.  I think I do better by them as paintings than in real life.  I tried a less structured approach with these this time.  Rather than starting out with a detailed drawing, I thought I'd "wing it" and just pencil it in roughly and let my eye do the measuring.  A lot more fun this way.
