Creative Ways to Paint a Flower

I’ve been painting animals. Then insects. Today I painted flowers. What I’ve learned from the creative exploration class is:

  • using various tools is fun
  • using various tools makes is easy to work through a mistake and somehow make it work
  • using various tools makes it easy to come into your syle
  • using various tools gives you more ways to discover your talent and gain confidnece.

I’m going to use what I’ve learned to paint all the animals for the book. All of a sudden I have a plan. I had one before but it was elusive.

I like the flowers I painted. All it took was some simple acrylic, tempera, colored pencils and a little watercolor. I have an idea for creating a garland of flowers with a quote that reads whatever you do, do it with you.
