Ranunculus cheers me up

Finally I am posting another painting.

I liked painting ranunculus last year, back then I just couldn’t help but saying inside me, being surprised at one of the finished paintings wondering “this is better than my painting”….. I think some of you understand what I’m talking about. 😀 I kept that one but sold other.

This year I found one adorable ranunculus again. They are ALL cheerful and cute and pretty, but what I look for is the shape of petals which can be expressed by the wide brush strokes. This orangy-red folower was it.
