3.5 x 5
At my sister's prodding, I've started a small journal to practice drawing flowers.
She's doing the same with faces. I have a love/hate relationship with flowers. I've seen so many wonderful paintings of flowers where....you might not even be able to identify what flower it is...but nevertheless, you know it's a flower. I don't really want to paint realistic flowers....just impressions. It's not that simple. Sometimes, they look like blobs. I bought this little book to practice different mediums, different flowers. I need to loosen up!
Here are two more....the one on the left is done with watercolor pencils and the one on the right....I just drizzled ink straight from the dropper. I actually like it better than the stylized flower on the left.
These are coneflowers, painted with acrylics. There was a photo of these on the cover of the Home section of our weekly newspaper this week so I tried to copy them.
And with these two pages, I made a copy of one of my journal pages and cut it up to create these two pages....which I kind of like. Is this cheating?
I'm going to continue this exercise of trying to paint a flower(s) almost everyday. It's a nice little exercise and being that's it's on 3.5 x 5 in. pages, it's do-able. I want to do paintings with flowers...I have to get over my fear of them!
