I painted this today for a lesson for my class at Riverside Art Center. This dahlia is from a photo taken by John Robinson from the website "Paint My Photo."
This painting is 9" x 12" and is painted on 140 lb. cold-pressed watercolor paper. The pink is from my favorite pink color - Opera - from Holbein paints.
The focal point is, of course, the flower itself, and I tried to soften up the background so it wouldn't compete with the flower.
