Floral paintings

I’ve really been getting into the floral paintings over the last few months. I have done some water colours that I’ll show you next week. I’ve also done several sketches for my colouring book.

To check out more of my work go to my Facebook or Instagram feeds to see some work in process pics.

Here are some of my recent acrylics paintings on canvas board.

I really love sun flowers and so does my step mum. I painted these for her when she came over to the uk earlier this year.

Poppies are just beautiful and stunningly bright! These ones are already sold.

Lilies are my favourite flowers and I absolutely love this little one. The most realistic I’ve managed to paint so far.

And the last of my acrylic flowers for now, my yellow roses. I will have to revisit these ones as I’m not 100% happy with them.

Thanks for looking at my work,

Winter scene of a River and Cabin

As you can tell by now I love water, I love painting cabins and landscapes with stormy skies. They are my absolute favourite things to paint. The reference picture I loosely based this one on is from pixabay.com.

(First layers of colour)

I loved the colours in this particular painting are very calming. My favourite combinations to use at the moment are yellow ochre, blue and greens. Again I decided to put a stormy sky in there as well.

(Determining the composition of the painting)

Here I am starting to add more layers and details into the painting. Figuring out where points of interest are going to be is probably the hardest part of painting. Once you know where all the objects sit you can start adding shadows and highlights and details to the painting. By adding details such as highlights and shadows this gives the painting depth and interest. The reflections on the water really make it seem as though it’s real.
