So why would I title this frustration? This is an excellent example of a great subject matter, but a painting that is just so-so because of the lack (I feel) of dynamic lighting. These hollyhocks were beautiful, but the late evening lighting added no 'pop'. I added flowers to create an interesting painting, even tried to recreate the brick wall they were in front of, but.........

So I will continue to search for hollyhocks with dramatic lighting. I have seen beautiful paintings of hollyhocks and anxious to give it a try.
