Oh, man, you did this without any line work?? Bravo! Gorgeous painting, Joan!
I don't think I can say anything better than MiataGrrl! Really pretty painting, Joan!
It came out beautifully Joan!! I love the composition and the different textures, sometimes I want to skip over the sketching but never get such great results.
Ooooh, pretty! Leaving out the line work in this one made it seem looser and more delicate - which was perfect for the subject matter.
...and so you should be, it's lovely... :-)
Oh Joan you should be happy. This is lovely and you know how much I enjoy flowers. This place must have certainly inspired you - I know it has me. Have a lovely day.
Tina, LOL I'm usually not brave enough to sketch in ink first, but I am doing some watercolors directly in paint. Thanks.Sherry - Thanks so much!Celia - Thanks. I wouldn't do it if I considered it an actual painting, but it is in my sketchbook so I figured I should try it.Mickey - Thanks. Some things work without the pencils lines, but something really architectural is a problem. lolKat - Glad you like it. Thanks.Debbie - It is just such a friendly, relaxed place to paint. You would love it. Thank you.
Peconic Herb Farm is a favorite place to go for my ground covers. We lost everyone to "Sandy". .....now we have to start all over again! This is a beautiful painting...love the flowers!
You've been busy, Joan! This turned out lovely - so airy and bright. And your clouds a few blogs back are really evocative of unstable spring... the moral of the story for artists this time of year is always take a jacket. And a hat. And an umbrella. And a waterproof sketchbook!
