This plant was so much fun to paint. Exaggerating the yellows and reds and blending them together was my favorite part. I had them on my desk for about two weeks, practicing drawing them and painting. I started needing to use my inhaler more, and my throat was scratchy during the second week, I figured I was probably just getting a cold. When I finished painting this, I took the plant outside and immediately I could breathe better! That’s how I found out I’m allergic to marigolds 😂.
