This week's Daily Paintworks Challenge is to paint sunflowers. I had a wonderful time with this painting. I enjoyed adding all the wild purple and blue flowers and doing lots of negative painting within the stems. As well as a bit of 'fingernail scratches'. : )
If you're in Toronto on Monday April 13, 2015, I'll be doing a watercolour demonstration! Actually, first I'll be talking a bit about life drawing short poses, since so many fellow life drawing artists will be there, then I'll be doing a flower demo. There will be cookies!
Here is this week's Daily Paintworks Challenge, which was to paint the photo provided. I added some blue flowers and leaves to the right side of the little glass jar, to balance things out. I also added one in the yellow jug, on the left. I'm really pleased with the way it turned out. : )
I think I'm gettin' the hang of these Zentangles. I used two patterns called akoya (braided pearls) and florz (like tiles). Then I shaded in with colour pencils. This one is 5x7". It kinda works 'upside down' too!
