Pink Cone Flowers Painting

Sometimes I just have to paint! I recently approached my art table with no concept in mind, I just wanted to paint. I looked at what paint was left on the palette from my previous project, and decided a cone flower - echinacea - would work. After putting some initial strokes on the canvas, I went to my computer for flower images that I photographed from my garden. I didn't paint that image of fuschia colored echinacea, but I used it for inspiration.
This was worked with Liquitex Heavy Body Acrylics. I kept it pretty loose, which was a challenge for me.
