Still Life Inspiration
Flowers from my garden
I am receiving so many emails letting me know I am missed on my blog and I really am so touched by such fantastic comments on how much my blog is enjoyed. I have no workshops coming up as I am working hard on my second book on watercolour at the moment.
Yesterday I picked a few flowers from my garden to make a posy to sit in my living room. As I looked at it throughout the day I imagined how I would paint the collection of flowers, the pretty composiution and the beautiful colours. I could see so much in this arrangement that I knew I had a wonderful composition on my hands for a terrific painting. While many artists would keep the idea for themselves I thought I would throw the challenge your way as well and see if this inspires you to move your brushes.
If it does please email me your finished painting as I would love to see it.
What do I think of when I look at this? I see light first of all, I see delicate petals. I see a sense of movement because I know each flower head would move in the breeze if it was in the garden still. I fel an urge to rtace for my favourite shade of Opera Rose!
What to do you see?
If you are lost at what to paint today have a go at my still life challenge.
I dare you!
Think I might try this Jean, A couple of members from the Painting Loft met you at the Mall Galleries and were passing on your tips to the site.
