I only have three, one is our first lily, one is this one, the other is yellow roses and red rose bud. But neither of the other two is as good as this one.
I have just learned to paint flowers in watercolor this year. I love the botanical illustrations in the Time Life Encyclopedia gardening boos. So I began to imitate. This led me to do flower painting of my own.
When I have a garden of my own, I will paint more.
Good luck! that forum is even quieter than this one!!!
Try buying some fresh flowers or go sketching in a park to find them. That is a much better way to learn to paint
than from other flower pictures in books. Still life with flowers, what could be better! You will have an arrangement in the house and paintings!!
Wow BD, another beautiful painting. I love the shadowing effects on the floor from the sunlight beaming through the door. I feel so happy looking at this painting, very reminiscent of the feelings I get when I have fresh cut flowers.
Good luck with your move. I can only imagine the beauty of the countryside in China.
Thanks for posting your artworks this one is lovely, bright jolly colours,watercolour pencils? Good composition. Well done! Once you start to grow your flowers, you will find, like most people, that you don't want to cut them!!
Good job you are moving to the countryside, you could have a flower meadow!!
and there wrote about how I learned to draw and paint. But you need to read from bottom to top. You see I was a programmer at first, I had not thought of painting at all...but when I was 26, I experienced some changes...
