Here’s another attempt to improve my florals. I added a bit of olive green and light hooker’s green to viridian green here. For the flower, I used mostly cadmium red with a touch of cad orange and a bit of alizarin crimson, preserving some white areas per the advice of some good artist friends a few days ago.
I kinda like to see two complementary colors duking it out on the page. I feel like this is an improvement over my last attempt at this type of flower. Anyone wanna guess what flower this is?
I just love weekends, now more than ever. I really enjoy my day job (more now, because of art), but the chance to have some uninterrupted time to draw, paint, and throw some color around….honestly, there aren’t too many things better than that! I hope you’re getting a chance to do a few of your favorite things this weekend, too! Happy Sunday to you. Peace.
