Diane Mannion, SUNSTRUCK, 6x6" oil

These are beautiful, Diane - I love the translucence in the petals. They look like they were painted from life.

Very nice demo, too!

Thanks, Sonya. I think it's the hours and hours painting plein air that trains the eyeballs to "think" like they see it from life. Painting from my 36" HD tv is the next best thing.
