New Flower Project - Zinnias

Hi Everyone, I have been searching flower sites trying to come up for an idea for my next floral painting and I have decided on the beautiful Zinnia flower. These flowers orginate from Mexico and our similar to sunflowers and Gerbera daisies. They have beautiful colors ranging from bright orange, vibrant, dark reds, dark pinks and bright yellows. I am going to paint them in a Mexican style pot.

There will be lots of color going on this one. A fiesta of color and the painting will be entitled "Zinnia Fiesta"!

So here is my very rough sketch of the new idea.

I will not be able to start any work on my painting as Andreas and I have decided to hit the road tomorrow and drive to Luebeck, Germany for a few days.
It will be really nice to get away on a mini vacation. Hoping we have some better weather as the weather is the absolute pitts here!

We will be back on Saturday late afternoon. See you all soon and have a wonderful upcoming weekend!

Hey Sue, Thanks so much for dropping by. Appreciate your support and wonderful comments. Finally getting around to painting again, but I took a nice break.

Hi Anita, How are you! Great to see you, thanks so much. I appreciate it. Yes, it is aztecy...and you would really know these colors having lived in Mexico. Must be so different from where you are living now in SA.
Cheers Anita, and take care!
