Expressive Flowers

Letting go with new art supplies

Three pink flowers painted with soft acrylic

I went to the art store and walked the isles. I had a great time. I intended to pick up glue and gold paint. I walked out with new paint colors. There’s raw sienna and soft acrylic. I had my hands on a yellow Sennelier oil pastel. It was beautiful and I left it behind. I could see myself creating beautiful sunflowers, but can I scan oil pastels without making a mess? There’s so many colors and brands to choose from. I simply went for the few colors that I needed in my collection. If you every get creative block, go to an art store. Be careful. I wanted to buy it all. The newsprint paper would have been good for collage. Wait a minute, that paper would be perfect for a floral project I’ve been thinking about. Ok so obviously I’ll be going back.

These flowers are just swatch practice, but they would make a cute art print. I used a flat brush to create random strokes for the petals. Oh, I made a little video on Instagram @creatively.hue if you want to see the supplies I purchased.

It has been a wonderful day,

With love,
