30 Paintings in 30 Days. Day 6

"Begonia" 8" x 8" oil on panel
This flower looked so beautiful in a nursery. It was the only one left, so I had to take it home. Don't worry. It is not going to spend winter outside, it is now a house plant.

Usually I buy my panels, but these 8" x 8" I decided to prepare myself. The first one I sanded too much and it became too slick (see the day 4). To prime this one I used a roller and didn't sand it at all. As a result it turned out being too absorbent. I didn't notice it at first, but in a couple of hours colors lost its "oily" look. Today I will sand it slightly and see what happens...
