Photo reference for Brown Velvet
Brown Velvet is another creation inspired by the same mass planting of Rudbeckias as my last post. The perky center of this flower resembles a chocolate gum drop with radiating petals that look like slices of dried mango fruit. Too bad this variety of flower is not edible (at least I do not think it is)... but I know for sure my painting is not!
