But when I looked at these flowers, I fell in love with them. Particularly, this pot caught me, even though it did not win any prize at the show. What do you feel in these flowers? Well, I feel something very sexy. Colours, forms and styles look like dressed up ladies going out for a party.
Technically, the colours have come up well in those paintings. I usually bring Arche300(A4) and a cheap sketch book(A4) together. The first uploaded work is on Arche. I'm thinking of a background and waiting for an idea will come up. The below is my first quick sketch.
Putting similar colours/picking up one colour from a subject is a safe and orthodox way to make a background. I do not know why, but a very light blue came across heart for a backgroud colour. Mmm ... not sure yet. I hold an action and leave it out "white" untill a clear image comes up.
Back to the topic.
The Orchid loving members told me interesting backstage stories with their enthusiasm for flowers. They say, "Each flower is different. Like it has a mouth and a face. So, I look into a flower one by one." Uniqueness! Individuality! Oh, that's what I've been working on in my art work. In my eyes, each person is so precious and beautiful in any circumstances or contexts.
"Life is beautiful. People are lovely, " is my mantra for drawing. I hope my work will depict humanity and the beauty of us, ordinary people in daily life.
Friends, Happy Painting!! Bloom out in your own way!
(*Oh, yes, our life drawing class will start from today. Hey, we're planning to have get-together dinner after class late in the evening. Yey!!)
