I have been “fiddling” with different ways of painting flowers etc., from the garden just quickly and for a little light relief. I knuckled down earlier in the week to complete a recent commission, which was quite exacting. I am not posting it up on the blog as it is a “suprise” anniversary present for someone and I would hate it to be seen beforehand.
Here I have put in a background, which I don’t often do. I missed to get the delicacy of the sweetpea petals in this. However, I was quite pleased with the vase, which has an intricate raised pattern coming down the body. it was done in the evening indoors under artificial light and the shadow was coming from all directions which was a big mistake! I put a computer filter on the second one to give a different feel. I can see this more as a greetings card design. I don’t know what you think . . . . . ? A bit ” lumpy” ??
Good practice. . . . . and lots to work on.
