Purple Coneflower

"Purple Coneflower"
5 X 7
Oil on Hardboard

This is my entry into this weeks Daily Paintworks Challenge.  We were to only use three specific colors and white to do the challenge.  It was very hot when I went outside to paint this.  I was glad I remembered my hat!  Next time I will also need to remember my bug spray.  These coneflowers are part of a wild flower mix that my husband has planted around our pond.  Each week during the summer there is something beautiful blooming.


  1. Well done Karla! I love the composition,the colours look great and the brushwork is perfect.

  2. Karla, those cone flowers are wonderful and so much fun to paint.

  3. I have yet to do this challenge, not sure what I am going to do yet - still in thinking stage. You did a great job on this. I love purple cone flowers!

  4. I just love wildflowers. Love the grasses, the flowers, the sky...makes me want to lie in a hammock and just relax and enjoy nature's beauty.

  5. Lovely painting of cone flowers, with such a limited palette and only in one hour...well done!

  6. Thanks Carol! I really enjoy the challenges and this one is on it's way to a new home! Yay!
