I could buy the same shade, brush, brand, hold my brush at the exact angle but my work isn’t going to look like someone else’s. I prefer it not to.”
saw a fingerpainting Butterfly post @ettave and had to give my flowers another try
Dot your paint adding white to obtain shades of pink and peach.
Begin with the tip of your finger and slide down.
I’m curious. Have you painted flowers? I’d love to see your flower paintings? Tag me on Instagram @creatively.hue. These yellow florals were painted with a small sponge. I like trying odd objects and discovering textures or new techniques.
,,,when I just paint
when I am curious
when I am visualizing Lantans and how their color makes me feel.
when I am in the moment
when perfection is lost
The notebook is here! These are some of the first designs for the flower project. Right now I need to put into action all my ideas. I have a brand new book cover idea for live your love story! Different is Beautiful is coming along too. Interesting how sometimes you paint amazing and others you can’t get anything right or so you think. Yet I continue to paint and see the beauty in every single piece.
Are you working on a project? Maybe it’s a book or a poem? If you need a journal this beauty is available.
Not what I planned. The name is different and a perfect example of what this book is all about. Different is Beautiful.
There are so many shapes, textures, color, traits, names….it’s a wonderful world! Ok now I’ll go add a few more details to the fish.
Here’s a first look at some ideas for book covers. I should add a few more drawings,just draw and see what happens.
Then begin creating.
Gave these flowers a makeover.
Painting over acrylic with watercolor is great. The next time you buy a paint brush save the plastic bristles protector. You could use a straw too.
I have some cool bookcover projects coming this week and a new notebook journal. If you like this flower then you will love all of the other flowers I am putting in the book. I’ll be taking a few photos of all of my work to celebrate this project.
is you. James Victorie speaks of it as the you that demands to be heard, maybe not the you you carry around every day but you. Deepak Chopra says it’s the you, the creative curious lovable self you were born with. It is in that place where your best work happens. It is there where you decide to paint with a wheel, spray can or a straw.
These collage flowers are getting a makeover. Ok time to paint!
