This has been sitting on my desk for a week. I watched a Youtube demo, and that artist covered her tile with one solid color, and then painted flowers over that. I had that in my head when I started this, but clearly I was not thinking. I covered the paper in the sky blue. We all know what you get when you mix blue and yellow.
Started 4 x 4 inches. But the head was flat on one side, and the petals sort of flopped on that side as well. Digital crop to the rescue. Funny it took me that long for it to dawn on me to crop. But it did. Took a while for this to grow on me.
Site was down for three hours today. The internet to the server was out. The internet was out to all of Miles City (MT. Where the server is). Here’s hoping it stays up now.
Wishing you a day free of mishaps!
I like it, but then my Color scheme at home is lime green and crimson. I’m also rather partial to sky blue, so it seems this one is made for me.
Sounds like you Sea! Vivacious! So glad you like it Sea, you are a color master, so I will take your word for it 🙂
First, I’ll happily accept your wishes for a mishap-free day. Thank you!
Second, my eyes are immediately captured by the choreography of line, color, and layers in this painting. There is a very appealing tension between the delineating edges of (what I know to be) petals (but read as abstract and could be anything) and the soft flow of shapes and merging colors.
And isn’t digital cropping fun?
Dotty I just love reading your poetic, heartfelt observations 🙂 Thank you 😉 And yes… digital magic is fun 🙂
Has a lot fluidity, and I love muted colors…
Thank you Carol. Have fun with your studies today 🙂
Although the flower isn’t a clean yellow, which we all know is your favorite, this pieces is pretty good, Sheila. Two things to remember – ‘one man’s trash is another man’s treasure’ and ‘beauty is in the eye of the beholder’. So, don’t consider this a mistake but a learning experience.
Wise words, thank you Val 🙂 Hope all is well in your neck of the woods 🙂
Sheila, it’s gorgeous!!!!!
Ha ha, thanks Laurie. There’s the slap on the hand my inner critical voice needed!
