The other day my plein air group was invited to paint in a private dahlia garden. There were so many dahlias to choose from, but this one really attracted me.
It was a damp day and my paint wasn't drying very quickly. While I was waiting I started this painting of red dahlias. I painted it directly in watercolors. I still haven't decided if I am going to add a background (muted colors maybe?) or leave it white. What do you think?
