I spent a couple of days pouring over the paintings on Corneliu Dragan Targoviste's website. I am so inspired by his painting style, and have been learning a lot from copying his paintings. Here are a couple of his floral paintings copied. It is only when I copy that I realize how much of mastery it takes to make a simple subject look so extraordinary.
Doing these florals has given me an opportunity to try out a whole bunch of new colors that I have never used before. In the above painting I used Naples Yellow, and Naples Yellow Deep. The Perylene green has been a good addition as well!
