painting: pink flowers

Sunday, October 29, 2006

pink flowers 2006I gotta say, I'm not as sold on this one as I was on the painting I did last weekend... maybe it's because I just plain overworked this one, while the seahorse one just came easily, I don't know...

Maybe I should just have done the flowers with a much smaller brush, so they didn't look so much like they were painted by someone with no arms or left foot...

Maybe I should have just done "patches" of pink paint to represent flowers, like I did with the 103 layers of green paint for the background...

I dunno...

I suppose in the end it depends on what Ma thinks of it... but suddenly I'm feeling like I'm in primary school and bringing home some random piece of paper covering in nonsensical daubs of paint and expecting a big hug and a place on the fridge...

And I ended up redoing the beginnings of both the "Eddy" and "Tom" canvases... "Eddy" because I completely cocked up the first version my going over it too many times and essentially ruining what I had... and "Tom" needed to be redone in darker paint if the idea I have is going to work...

Grrrr...

I give up for today...

It's good - agree it's not as striking as last week's one, but there's still something about it. How big is it in real life?

Very intrigued by the blog series!

It, and the seahorse image, are both about A3 size give or take a couple of cms...

I like it. It has good balance and good colour.

It's good still. Not as good as the seahorse one in my taste but I think this is still pretty. :)

I didn't think you were serious when you talked about painting the "blogger series". :P

An Aussie blogger series?

That sounds cool.
