Flowers pots on back steps

An acrylic painting I did for Sonia, from a photograph she sent me of her flowering pots on her back steps. After an initial sketch I redrew it on the canvas, and then worked from the photo which was on my computer screen for hours.
I kept comparing the photo to my painting, working out what to paint baldly, and what to paint with muted colours with washes.
Sonia liked it.I loved this painting.It took about three days,and i am proud of this one.The contrast between the concrete steps, dark red bricks, the blue railings, and the colour of the flowers blends it together.Job done!
It is in Sonias now, awaiting to be hung.I framed the painting for her, so it was wall ready to hang up.
