Freesia Study #2

oil on canvas 6"x8" $80.

The freesias are opening up along the stem. The tiny end buds do not seem to open when they are from the store but when I grow them in my garden every single bud opens up.
This piece was a rush job as I worked on some larger paintings today and almost forgot that I am trying to do a small painting a day.
I painted this study very quickly - going for the basic shapes plus light and dark patterns. It certainly is a good way to not get into too much detail.
Tomorrow I will get back to the birds nests.
