Flowery temptation!

After gently dipping my toes in the water or should I say oils... I am trying to find out what I prefer to paint. As you may have figured out by now, I have a short attention span and I do get easily bored by painting the same subject or working in the same medium. However, I really really like oils so I thought I might give flowers a go, especially since I have hundreds of reference photos from our garden. A very good friend of mine suggested I try the Jenkins method to paint these lilies. It was an interesting experience but really not my cup of tea and I ended up doing my own thing with it.

As I gave the painting as a present, I cannot take any better pictures but I figure you get the idea from the work in progress ones :)
