Dandelion Clock

Dandelion Clock
Oil on gessoed board
This painting is a very simple composition, however the actual depiction of the seed head gave me much grief. I painted it over and over several times until I was even remotely happy with it. I envy those virtuoso artists who can wave their brush seemingly effortlessly over the canvas and achieve such convincing results. I feel so ham-fisted in comparison. Nothing comes easy to me in painting.
