Flowers Pots in Tuscany - 12" x 18" Pastel

I started this painting last Tuesday and worked on it a few hours here and there over the past week, so technically this is not a daily painting. I just haven't had the time to paint for long stretches with any consistency, and this turned out to be a more ambitious undertaking than I thought. I think I learned that I really don't like such a busy subject, but it was a good exercise anyway.

David Darrow in his daily blog says to paint what you are not good at (in order to improve at whatever that is); well, flowers and landscapes are are a particular challenge for me...give me a figure to paint anyday!
