I'm not even sure how long it's been since I've painted flowers... over a year probably. More's the pity; once I got into this painting, I realized how much I was enjoying the challenge. And it is a real challenge - in theory, it's difficult to paint anything well, but some things are more difficult than others. For me, portraits are the hardest, but florals are probably a close second... a good reason to paint some more.
