Painting Succulent Plants

We did a painting looking at the succulents from the top. Changing our point of view makes for interesting paintings and is something we should consider in our work. Also it was important to play with color to make these gorgeous greens and to use shadows to push the top layers up. This was a great lesson in observation and took a realistic painting to an almost abstract one.
I posted my demonstration and then the student work below.
