Gerbera Daisies

More pastel, with a watercolor underpainting. A friend gave them to us a couple of days ago. She was in Trader Joe's fairly early in the morning when a man working there handed them to her. What a treat!I managed to tip dust down the painting so I ended up with a dirty background. Oh well. These are such bright-colored flowers that I just had to paint them.

Dirty background or not, these are wonderful! In fact, I can't see a dirty background in the photo at all so it must not be too bad. The colors you achieved, as well as the modeling of those petals is just perfect. Your foliage came out well, too...very nice painting.
