I can only stress, if you ever get a chance to take a class from Lynn Whipple.....do it! I had so much fun learning to be more free and loose with my painting skill. I have just finished the fourth floral painting. It measures 50" X 40" . It's big!!!! And you would think going bigger is easier. Hmmmm not so much. But I'm totally in love with by new Big Bold Wild Flower painting.
