Latest painting based on a photo in a Malaysian newspaper which caught the eye of my wife.
The original was flooded with orchids (too hard) so I thought I'd change the flowers to roses, but whoever stuck a rose behind their ear? Thorns!!!
I went with the frangipani flowers and I wanted to keep it fairly simple and not worry about too much about detail, light sources, shadows etc.
Result - Wife happy, Jim happy.
