INGRID'S BEAUTIFUL FLOWER

Not very often I feel like painting a flower.  So when I saw this, and Ingrid Ormestad said that I could paint it, I couldn't resist.  Most of you may know I don't like painting flowers.  Well - I enjoyed this one, just a little bit, and it's not too bad.

Thank you http://ingridormestad.blogspot.co.uk. A beautiful artist. Do go to her blog and look at her 30 day challenge paintings especially.

  9. When you paint a floral so beautifully as this Polly one would think you do them all the time.

    1. Thanks Lorraine. I could never do them all the time, so much to paint out there and I like variety.

  10. You did an impressive job on all those petals and their shading!!! I can understand that there are certain things we each prefer not to paint all the time, but it is fun to try them especially when they come out this good.

  11. The painting is so soft, delicate and beautiful! Even if you don't particularly like painting flowers, you apparently do them very well.

  14. It's exquisite! I like your honesty, though, telling us that flowers aren't usually your thing. Funny, isn't it, how we are sometimes pulled toward other subjects and styles that we don't consider to be our style, and yet we learn something about ourselves in the process. Whether you continue to paint florals or not, I'm guessing the experience enriched you as an artist. I love the flow and blend of the piece, by the way!
