Blue & Gold Wildflowers

It's winter, but I still have flowers on the brain.......

I discovered this awesome color palette with this painting kind of by accident.  It's hard to describe how I choose colors for my paintings, except to say that lots of the time they are totally arbitrary.  I wasn't looking at blue and gold flowers as I painted this, I just felt like going with cool colors so this is what happened!

  2. This is just gorgeous. Colors are exquisite. I very rarely color realistically. I just love these flowers.
