It seems to me this subject is overdone, though I have never tried to paint one, until yesterday. My friend let me use a wonderful photo he took. They aren't as easy as they look. I tried to stay loose and painterly and was unable to capture the translucent appearance of some of the petals. Lots of my colors seemed muddy as I completed it. I think if I don't stay with it, I take a few back steps, especially with oil painting, and this last week I was summoned to work on the necessities in life. Stay tuned for tomorrow's painting.
