Geranium Sprig

This is this week's entry to the Daily Paintworks Challenge. The challenge was to use the colour wheel and choose a colour scheme using complimentary colours. The most difficult part of this challenge was to find paper or cloth props that were the exact compliment of the subject of the painting. I have a whole new appreciation for painters who consistently produce lovely paintings every day whose colours are harmonious, but look like they were loosely arranged - they wern't! I have learned that it takes a lot of time and effort to consistently make great colour choices.


  1. Lovely painting Mary,I think you did a great job.

  2. Great looking painting. The colors in the flowers are set off so well against the soft, blues.
    Love you skinny red pepper paintings too. Fun!
