luminescent hydrangeas 33

Mona Pendleton | Friday, August 5, 2016 @ 12:57 AM | ,

Hi there! I hope all is well with you. I'm currently participating in a painting 5 week e-course called Painting Brilliant Colors with one of my favorite artists ~ Nancy Medina. I fell in love with Nancy's use of brilliant colors and impressionist style. Today I have an 11" x 14" painting to share featuring luminescent hydrangeas. 
It's quite challenging for me to paint hydrangeas without making them look like a big snow ball or cloud. Can't wait to try this one again!



I'm joining along with Scrap Africa's August challenge:
and I'm linking to the current Paint Party Friday post:
Thanks so much for stopping by ~ I hope you have a great weekend!
Be Sweet ;)
