When I see flowers, they make my heart lift up, they are calming and inspiring to me, the forms, colours and the scents...I love the beautiful hues at all of the stages of the flowering process, the petals and leaves often have such an unusual combination of colour as they fade away, I think this stage us just as beautiful and sometimes more interesting/inspiring than when they are in full bloom...
Rich colours of a red rose as it fades
I used my 'Raspberry Crush' texture from collection 2 to give a retro effect...
Such a variety of hues...all my fave pinks :)
One of my several works in progress...building up layers
I've managed to start painting again after quite a break...it feels good to get back into a creative rhythm again...it feels healthy to me...I'm working on heavy papers at the moment, stretching them before use, I like the effects and the vibrancy...I also feel freer working on paper, it's not as precious as a canvas, so I can experiment and work quickly, moving more freely without worrying 'this cost me £££'s, I'd better get it right'! I figure, the more I do, the better I'll get...hope so :)
As promised a short video of Izzy running in her pj's...in the snow!
I did manage to capture the pup in 'jamas running in the snow...just a couple of minutes of footage :)
Here's hoping that you have a creative and happy weekend, I look forward to seeing what you've been up to!
