5"x7", oil on gesso board

Once in a while, painting goes very well, quick and breezy. The first application of paint seems just right. This one was one of that rare occasion.
This geranium in my back porch is being neglected, regardless always have a few stunning Red blooms all through the year.
It is impossible to reproduce the natural, brilliant Red of this geranium, even with pure pigment of Winsor & Newton Oil.
Still quite happy about the result looking gorgeous in this painting.

Absolutely gorgeous. I think the bright red is verrrrry believable. Don't be so hard on yourself, my dear. Nobody is keeping a time sheet. Who cares how long it takes to complete the tomato painting? It's great.
