Flower - update
I do a little clear out of the studio now and then, just so I can move around more easily. Things pile up it seems... Anyway, I unearthed the flower painting that I had started and I added a few more layers to it, but its still a long way to completion. I used a 16 x 20 piece of Arches watercolour board for this. Its not a support that I had used before and I quite like the velvety surface it seems to create with the paint. (no, the the Elvis on velvet surface!)
I will finish this flower. It may be funky and unflowerlike by the time I finish it. Or I may give it to someone to actually knows how to paint flowers to finish! No, I wouldn't be that cruel. I'll suck it up and work on it. Its just all that pink...perhaps I should have done it smaller...its a flower...I don't do flowers...
See how those voices in my head push and jostle?
Ok. Time to be brave and face the flower. I'm going in.
