I decided to give myself a challenge, and paint a white flower that really does look like this.
Okay, some of you will think “Darn, that’s an ugly flower” (like my friend did), but it was a great painting challenge, with lots of lights and darks. I used a limited palette (titanium white, ultramarine blue, alizarin; yellow ochre, Hansa yellow, Hooker green, and burnt umber).
I think it is so…strange…it’s oddly beautiful.

I love it!!! It’s a wonderful flower!!! 😍 The shades in the flower is fabulous!!! 🥰👍
No…it’s not ugly at all. On the contrary, it’s very lovely. Just one question, what’s the size of the canvas? (It’s rather difficult for me to visualise from the photo)
Miishuangmu: Thank you for asking, I forgot to post that. This is done on a 10 X 10 inch acrylic board canvas.
It looks like linen blowing in the breeze.
My best friend said it looks like a “triffett” from a science fiction story 🙂
