LILY OF THE VALLEY

Can you believe it, I have painted another flower. I wonder am I sickening for something, this isn't like me at all!  I may have caught floweritis from all you flower bloggers!


For my next post I will be introducing you to Annie Arkwright.  Who is a friend of mine.   You may want to catch up with her story on my other blog Pollyluvspainting and the label is 'friends of mine' before she appears here.   Those of you who have visited this blog will know that I have several unusual friends from the Lancashire area!  I have combined my 2 blogs now, so I welcome my followers of the other blog here to  this one.

  3. You should consider yourself a flower painter Polly because this is superb. Understated and brilliant in fact - love it (ps Can you tell I like it??)

    1. Wow, thanks Lorraine. I am only just realising that perhaps I can paint simple flowers. But your comments have definitely given me a boost. Glad you like it.

    1. Thank you Jane. It's nice to get encouragement for something you don't really enjoy painting.

  8. I can understand(maybe) that you want to paint flowers .... Like me, I'm not accurate, I want to face the reality and accuracy of realism in this period.
    These are ways to complete a search, to understand, after learning how to do one thing, if this thing was interesting (or not) for us ... maybe it's the same for you? I find very beautiful fresh and dynamic ,your lily of the valley!

    1. Thanks for your comments Rita. At this time in my art life, and would like to be able to paint anything but not worry about the accuracy too much. But I feel that I need to practice something first before I can paint it more freely. I'm glad you like my lily of the valley. Have a lovely weekend. (I have Janet Whittle's book to inspire me).
