|"Sam's Flowers", Acrylic on Gallery Wrap Canvas, 8"x10".|
I had learned that the bride's favorite flowers are lavender hydrangeas. However in my mind I remembered it as pink hydrangeas. So I searched and searched for pink hydrageas. I ended up going to a florist who I was able to purchase some from for a photo shoot.
It was at this point, that I rechecked my source for the information on the bride's favorite flowers and realized that I had misunderstood. Ugh! I was pretty much burnt out from my search for the pink ones that I didn't want to start a search for lavender ones!
I don't make it a practice of changing out a color of a flower on the reference photo but I looked at it as a challenge at this point. I worked consistently on it and finally finished the painting.
I ended up liking the final painting so much that I included it on my 2017 Art Calendar. Order yours here!
BTW-the bride and groom just recently received their gift and they loved it.
