I can't honestly say this is my favorite painting I've ever done, it was really more of an experiment for me. I'm usually very tight and detailed and I wanted this one to be a little more free.
When I was doing the background, I had the flowers outlined in masking fluid so the background wouldn't wash into them. When I decided to give the background a very spattery look, it started dripping into the flowers and I thought, "oh no!" But then I just decided to go with it. I knew the spatter and drips would show through when I painted the flowers, and thought it might give it an interesting effect.
I'm also not thrilled with the composition. I don't know what it is...but either way, it was fun to paint and I love the colors of gerber daisies. I'm sure I'll be doing more in the future.
