Backlit Daisies

This was a real struggle tonight. I like how I lit these daisies but for some reason I couldn’t wrap my head around what I was seeing. I was constantly confused of what I was looking at, I know it sounds strange, maybe only artists can understand what I mean. Anyway, I wasn’t able to calm myself and focus on any one spot tonight and work through the complexity of shadow/light shapes to get much done on this painting. I think I will wipe it out tonight and start over.
