Columbine Studies 6"x 6"

Since I had so much trouble with the columbines yesterday I decided to do some little studies.  I was thinking most about how to make the lighter color of purple.  Just adding white seemed to cool it too much so I thought I'd try more pink.  I think that worked.  I would like to have done each one in 10 minutes.  It took 50 minutes for the first, then 30 min, and 25 for the last 2.  I think the drawing improved as I went along.

Columbines with Euphorbia 8"x 8"

It's been so long since I've painted.  I was pretty unhappy with this so I scraped it off.
