A Pastel Floral

I am so happy with how this turned out.

I found these pastels in the clearance aisle. The set is missing six, all warm, and mostly yellows. Explains why I am leaning towards the cool end of the spectrum. I only spent $4 on a set of 36, so I don’t have that feeling that I am wasting expensive art supplies. Freeing, when it comes to learning a new medium. I can play and just have fun.

I started out thinking I would paint Bougainvillea. Maybe close up abstract shapes. Not what this is at all.

I started with some loose pink shapes in watercolor. I worked the entire piece, but left the flowers until the end. I absolutely love the light green in this, light sap green. Using that with light blue, and indigo and seeing how they play off of each other. The darks in this are all indigo, sometimes mixed with green.

My composition could use tweaking. I have an even amount of buds, and they line up a bit more than they should. I could have divided the layout better, had more of the sky, and more of the shadows. Blah-blah-blah. But I did manage to seal this one without destroying it!

Still for all the blatant mistakes. I like it! Maybe I am hallucinating, I think it really looks good on a pillow. And that is what I intended.

What do you think?

I know I have been quiet for a while, but now you can see why. I have been busy adding to my shop on Zazzle.com. I am so excited to share these with you!

I never would have thought of postcards as an outlet for my art. I owe that inspiration to Kat Sloma and her Liberate Your Art event. There is still time to join this year, for anyone interested. It is free, and FUN!

If you want to join, I will even share my postcard layout for the back with you to make your own. Just comment with your email, and I will send you the PDF. I will delete your email before publishing the comment. Sorry, I know, slacker. I should have the PDF available as a link. Maybe I can get to that tomorrow.

Ok, off to make chicken tortilla soup, and roast some potato’s for dinner tonight and tomorrow.

Have a super day everyone. Thanks for reading this, and please feel free to share it.

Happy creating to you!
