Cosmos continued


I finished the cosmos painting today and have been working on a new larger composition.
Composition counts for about 80% of a picture's success, I reckon, and so it's worth spending time thinking about it. Sometimes it seems to come naturally without trying, for instance when you have managed to capture a good ready made design with the camera lens. Sometimes you have to work at it and sometimes it doesn't happen at all and you have to abandon.

This one was a bit hurried...I was anxious to make a quick start to explore these flowers. But I learned a lot about the subject from doing the painting and will take that knowledge on to the next project.
