March Workshop

Hello and welcome to my blog , I haven’t posted in a while .
I have become fed up painting flowers in the same way , so I am starting out on a new path , while still keeping to my first love , painting flowers , animals are a close second , with buildings creeping in .
I am interested in SHAPE -COLOUR – TONE and COMPOSITION. 
Here I still have recognisable , I hope flowers , with interesting shapes and texture running through the background , and this time a balanced palette .
I plan to post more often now ,new paintings and why , I welcome your opinion on this journey .

I am not interested in seeing the whole story , as in a flower has to have a leaf or a stem , it is just a shape , I can get the normal stuff from life and photographs , why try to duplicate that , I want to create something of a different view , like when looking into the flames of a fire , I see lots of dancing shapes , I try not to call them flames , that’s a normal view , see castles and rich yellows , oranges , reds , contrasted by the dark coals , or rich brown woods .
And do not get me started on clouds , you get my meaning .
That is it this time , bye for now .

    This is a beautiful painting Bev. I love this method. I think I did ask if you had DVD’s or you tube demos. If you don’t, this would be a good one to do.

    Cheers and happy painting.
