ACEO - Single Flower 1 and Petunia 1

The nice thing about painting flowers, unless you are painting botanical studies is that they do not have to have a lot of detail in them for people to recognize they are flowers.

The red flower is a generic kind of flower. It could be any number of species of red flower it is up to the viewer to decide what they are seeing.

Single Flower 1

The second flower is very simply painted.

The leaves give definition to the bottom edges and with the center indicated and a little a small amount of shadow painted into the petal, it is easy to recognize the type of flower.

Petunia 1
