I had a lot of fun painting this bigger piece today & yesterday… I took a lot of photos of the dahlia fields at Andrews Farm a couple weeks back, and have been itching to have a go painting from them as inspiration. Tried to be conscious of not over working the whole thing, leaving some areas loose, while painting details in other areas. Was handy having one last cut dahlia on hand to see how the flowers attach at the back, and how the buds look before opening. At 3×3 feet, it’s one of the bigger paintings I’ve done recently. Again I took a time lapse while painting so you can see it come together… excuse me as I get in the way a bit!
available in the winery
Pop by Andrews Farm Market & Winery in Milton, to see the painting in person… be sure to explore the farm, the dahlias are still blooming!
