I’m really enjoying florals as subjects right now; they’re so cheery and full of joy. I recently painted these from a little bouquet Hub gathered together for me. The one thing I will miss about summer is having lots of fresh flowers in the gardens ready to be painted!
The rose in the vase was done first with one of those Neocolor II water-soluble crayons I mentioned the other day, and then I added a bit of watercolor paint from my Cotman travel palette. The top left rose was a different view of the rose in ink and watercolor. Ignore that cosmos flower on the bottom, that was a color experiment gone horribly wrong. 🙂
I hope you all have a wonderful Tuesday, and are looking forward to some cool, crisp air. And weenie roasts! Lots of those to come, too. Peace.
