white dahlia

white dahlia

This is my donation to this year's
Pine Shores Art Association Patron Show.

.... and what was I thinking?
A zillion petals to paint!
I worked from the outside in and got lost several times.
The original photo was a bright pink dahlia, but I 
changed the image to black and white to see the values.


  1. Love the contrast you have created with your choice of colors.

  2. This is such a beautiful painting Carol.
    A different technique to paint from outside in.. do you trace or draw by hand.!
    a lovely gift to give.
    happy week val
