Pitcher Plants Laughing / oil

Is it just my imagination or are these the happiest plants in the garden?

Is it just my imagination or are these the happiest plants in the garden?

I did the underpainting for the pitcher plants with shades of Alizarin Crimson because the veins in the plants are red. When that dried I put on thick glazes of white and green on top of the red and scratched off lines of wet paint to show the red lines coming through. I also used the scratch through wet paint technique on the pine straw on the ground. This is another way to draw with paint and add texture.
