It is almost impossible to get a good picture of a watercolor painting. Anyway, I am trying to figure out what pictures that I should submit to a contest, and the deadline is on the 30th. Let me know your thoughts. I also have to have an artist resume and art statment, but I will worry about that later.

Another Orchid

1 comment:

Okay, I worked on the orchid painting again--adding color pencil and some different colors, and another flower. I think it only needs a little more work, what do you think?

Okay, here is another painting. It's oil pastel on watercolor. I agree with your critique of the last post, and I will bring out the details of the building and see what happens. I also was thinking of doing a white glaze over the flowers--maybe draw in the building with pencil and then do a white glaze.

With this one, I am trying to decide if I want to put more flowers in or add the stick that adds support to the stem. I forgot how much fun it is to work with oil pastels.


This is a painting that I took a picture for in Detroit and then I just did the painting today. This, again, is the progression of my attempt to paint hope or optimisim. Of course, these paintings
keep going back and forth between hope and defeat. Hopefully, if someone is optimistic they will see the flowers as representing beauty in a tarnished setting, and, in turn, hope. Let me know what you think.

I am going to leave these painting for a little bit, just because it is hard to try to keep them coherent. I am going to try to do some super detail orchids for a contest that is coming up at the end of the month.
