Judy and Carolyn led an outdoor class on flower painting. Flowers of all kinds! Here are some of the love demos as well as some practice doodles. This is great for learning about wet in wet, lost and found edges, painting in layers, and being loose! The less detail the better for a flower sketch. We had a great time with all the ladies, sitting under the trees and painting away the afternoon.
When the Pleasant View Painters came to tea, Carolyn had an early spring bouquet for Judy’s table. These are tulips and saskatoon blossoms. The arrangement was strongly back lit by the sunshine through the window so the colours were strong and pure.
Which way up? A painting with subject matter like this could go any which way. Which do you prefer? By the time this post goes up, the painting will be finished but the way up will still be up in the air…
This one is a little difficult to figure out. The flower pot is on a ledge inside a screened in porch. In the background there is a juniper bush and some leafy stuff in a rock garden against the garage. The light was the part that caught my eye but, again, I never like my flower paintings as much as I would like to.
