Flowers – complete

Gosh flowers are hard.    I  now have a good deal more respect for the genteel Victorian ladies who specialized in this.

Anyway I abandoned the previous attempt as it wasn’t feeling right.   After another quick failed sketch we ended up with this.   I’m not too displeased – it’s a bit stilted and the colours don’t really hang together (even though I only used 3) but when all’s said and done it could have been a lot worse.

Here’s a quick closeup

And in real life

  1. Well, I think your flowers are lovely. I can't paint or draw at all and I am in awe of people who can.

    (This is Val by the way – saw James' link to your blog and couldn't resist a peep. Hope all is well there – Cambridge is the same as ever, and very pretty in the spring sunshine!)

  3. Nice to hear from you Val! Painting is extremely satisfying regardless of the end result (although obviously it's a bonus to have something you're not ashamed of). Regards to R and your junior members of staff.
