This painting represents my entry in this week's Daily Paintworks challenge submitted by James Coulter.  Mr. Coulter challenged us to paint flowers outside for an hour using only three brushes and a limited palette. Very fun!  And not too hot.  My iPhone registered only 99 degrees today.  We must be enjoying a cool front!  (Wink,wink.)

Do yucca blossoms count as flowers?  I hope so!

My palette colors: Ultramarine Blue, Cadmium Yellow Lt, Cadmium Red Medium and Titanium White.

You did a great job on this Challenge, Darla. I'm not sure I've seen yucca blossoms before. I like the way they stand out against the dark background. Only 99 degrees? Enjoy!

Thank you, Linda. I always enjoy hearing from you. :)

Of course they count as flowers and this is beautiful, Darla. It reminds me of fireworks.

Only 99 degrees, you lucky girl. I think I would have taken a photo outside, then come in to paint.
