"First Bud of Winter"

"First Bud of Winter" 6x6" Oil on canvas panel

I am taking advantage of this opportunity to paint my camellias while the bush is still in bloom. The thick green leaves seemed to be huddling around like a parasol sheltering this delicate southern belle from the wind and rain. This created a design problem with the focus of interest all to one side of the canvas and leaving a big blank space on the left. I decided to add some dappled light, shadows and a touch of repeated color to help balance out the space with some interest. This seems to help and saved this painting from ending up in the trash.

Thank you for viewing my painting.  - nancy
