MARILENA PISTOIA is (was) an amazing botanical artist.  (will go home and get name of the book) ,,I bought one of her books off Amazon for a ridiculous small amount of money.  It's a huge book with gorgeous paintings!  I figure a great way to learn is by learning how the masters do it!

So, again, this is a study I've painted of Marilena Pistoia's work.  It is NOT my original idea!  I don't want anyone thinking I'm claiming it as my own. I enjoy trying to figure out how to match colors of other work with my own color mixes.

This one was also done back in January.....
