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,

Day 10 – 30 Days of Art

Flowers! My favourite flowers in the whole world are lilies! I love the different colours. So I thought I might draw a few different types of flowers. I obviously need to work on shading but I like the general shape of them all. While researching flowers I was so surprised at the amount of different kinds of orchids there are,and the different colours they come in! WOW!!

Below, is the start of a portrait I’m doing of my monkeys. It’s my ‘take my time’ piece that I hope to finish. If you’ve been reading my posts then you know faces elude me. So I think this will be a great help for me to improve my skills. I think it’s really important to tackle the things you find the hardest head on. There is no point sticking your head in the sand!

30 days of art

So I started my 30 days of art to improve my skills in a huge way. As with most new skills if we don’t have it in front of us constantly we can forget about it or put it off til tomorrow and then suddenly it’s been months and there hasn’t been any progress. Well I didn’t want this to happen so I challenged myself to draw or paint something/anything everyday for 30 days. I’ll start from the beginning here but on my instagram you can get up to date with all of my art so far!

My inspiration for day 1 was the mini rose bush my beauties picked out for me. I love flowers, and we are constantly adding to our small garden.
