Watering Can

Watering Can
8 X 8
Oil on Hardboard
Here is my painting from the Daily Paintworks Value Challenge.  (See previous post).  As you can see I went with the 3rd lighter background option.  I am happy with that decision.  As you can also see I ditched the peony.  It just wasn't working.  Even if I could have painted it well I don't think it would have looked right.

This watering can was another garage sale find.  $1.00!  I think this prop will be in more paintings in the future.

  2. The colours are wonderful, and the whole thing is just gorgeous. Good idea to leave out the peony; it really wasn't adding anything to the composition.
