This is my first posting to a blog called the 20 minute challenge, where a picture needs to be painted in 20 mins. The red aednium flowered for the first time this week and it is such a lovely colour. I realised that 20mins is actually adequate time to create a picture. I have a tendency to want to paint every single detail in any picture I want to create and have been trying to develop the ability to look at only what is most needed in a picture and not get confused by too much detail in any scene. Attempting this challenge helped me do this! Will try and do one everyday!!!

  1. This one has come particularly well - I can´t believe you did it in just 20 minutes! The balance between light and dark on each petal makes the depth of the flower really clear - maybe it´s not a question of getting to much detail but a question of getting the right bits of detail...
