No. 2--Daffodils Abstracted
You'll notice that I'm not super tied to the set up, which is my preference. My style is definitely free-for-all, with lots of bleeds and mixing on the page. I was also stymied by the fact that I took my model photo with my nose to the counter, which is not how I want to paint. The point of view of the painting and the photo are different.
I don't own that many vases, so you'll be seeing them repeat. This vase is from Neusole Glassworks, which is located in Forest Park. The daffodils are from my front yard.
I'm not just painting flowers. (That would be boring!) It just happens to be what I've been blogging about.
Paint: Carbazole Violet, isoindoline yellow, lemon yellow, cobalt, undersea green, all Daniel Smith.
Paper: Fabriano 300 lb Rough

No. 200 and No. 1--Orange Flowers From Kroger
I've met some fabulous people electronically (Rhonda Carpenter and Laura Starrett, I'm thinking of you), and painted and painted, and painted. I think I'm getting better. I'll check back in another 5 years.
My paintings are getting more and more abstract, so logically, I'm starting a project that's literal. #100bouquets. I'm taking this up after following Lauren Everett Finn's similar efforts. This is my first, and it's on a full sheet. I figure to take about a year to get this done, although I reserve the right to take more time. I like to paint flowers, but they all just froze, which doesn't bode well, and I tend to get distracted.
