Did this a few weeks ago now and I am really pleased with it. Not too sure about the blur on the lower flowers but apart from that I think it really works. I'm particularly pleased with the composition and palette. I hope to have a few more produced when I can get some more reference photos. 
Lots of people sneer about painting from photographs but its the best way for me. Perhaps if I had been formally trained things would be different!

RBSA Prize Exhibition 2016

Once again I entered another exhibition this time with two paintings. This one and 'Waiting'. I was so pleased that both were selected and then I was informed that I had  been awarded a prize, the first prize! So I'm absolutely thrilled that I was awarded the GMC First Prize last night at the @rbsagallery for their 2016 Prize Exhibition. It's an honour to be exhibiting among such wonderful artists. Thanks again to the model Sarah - there's so much more going on behind these eyes..

There are some amazing pieces of art at this exhibition. Look at these :
