Authorship is not a trade, it is an inspiration; authorship does not keep an office, its habitation is all out under the sky, and everywhere the winds are blowing and the sun is shining and the creatures of God are free.
-- Mark Twain

Direction

 

This is starting to move in the direction I want it to move, particularly the left, front petal that is purple-red-yellow.

A few things made the difference.

  • A solid line sketch in pencil of the flower.
  • Reducing my palette to only four colors: cadmium red medium, cadmium yellow medium, dioxazine purple, and titanium white.
  • Listening to New Order.
I'm cool with this one. I'll rework the areas I don't like and finish this tomorrow.

I agree.

I couldn't be specific, but something about your style evokes some of the same "feel" I get when I look at some of Georges Rouault's works.
