Wild Azaleas

Oil on Canvas

This is from a photo from the Wet Canvas Image Reference Library. I originally tried to do it in a “loose” style like Bongart (like I am always trying to do), but it just looked sloppy and unfinished. I decided to finish it the best I could and not worry about technique, and it came out very nice. I think I am just going to have to give up my dreams of painting like Bongart, and just paint the way I naturally paint.
