The Blue Challenge








The blue challenge was to paint a work using blue and to keep the painting in high key, or light hues, and to not use any red or orange. It sounded simpler than it was but here is my first attempt.  And it is my best attempt. It amazes me how easy it is to lose freshness which is what happened on the second try. So, enjoy. Probably the last fresh roses of the season as it is now raining cats and dogs. ....and large, large drops.
