Painting flowers for so many years, I sometimes just paint from memory. Or take a peek at what the flower looks like and just go for it without looking again. Arraigning the setup in your mind can be tricky, but rewarding if all goes well. This is how this painting came about. I just paint what feels right with each brush stroke. I started out with just the lobelia but it seemed to lack a center of interest, so I added the daisies. That seemed to make it pop and bring your eye to a focal point. Painting flowers never gets boring, there are so many different species to choose from.
