These exceptional flowers called dragon flower (also known as snapdragons) I bought in flower shop near the house and decided to paint it as soon as possible.
Although dragon flowers are the wildflowers, I find them very fine and elegant. These really amazing small flowers have a very interesting unusual form of petals, with the color gradient from saturated pink to white.
So, I painted this middle size etude from nature. As usual, for the background I used light blue sky tone, for flowers I applied carmine, titan white, lemon yellow and emerald green. This time, I didn’t stop on detail so much, I tried to achieve an impressionistic effect, some sense of air and light in the picture.
