Just to improve up my floral painting skills (and to maybe accelerate the coming of Spring), I’m doing a 30 Day Challenge! All flowers (with a few plants).
These poppies were painted for a business card. I love them because they are such a cheerful flower. The bright pops of red are recognizable anywhere.
If you have any flower suggestions, let me know! (I might run out of ideas!)
Oil painting has intrigued me for quite awhile, and I’m proud to say I’ve finally done it! 🙂
Here’s the verdict: oil painting is a rich and creamy medium, and I’m sure it can produce amazing results, but it isn’t suited for someone like me, who likes to finish a painting in one sitting. Nonetheless, I will still dabble in it, I think. I enjoy a bit of abstraction sometime!
Here’s another shot, sitting on a tiny easel from Joann’s.
To all the oil painters out there, kudos to you for your patience. I mean that.
