Another Floral

I decided to do another floral, since I wanted to do something, but was not ready to do the ZIA on my previous piece. I may just leave it as is...thanks NC.
This one is a rose from Mable Ringling's Rose Garden in Sarasota. I took several pictures last Fall, and thought they would come in handy some day. Well, that day was today.
I am enjoying this process. Using the Spectrum Noir blending marker to add texture seems to work for me.
I am also discovering that I enjoy the less realistic look of the flowers. My art is usually very "tight", and realism has always been my aim. I need to relax and enjoy, not stress and become frustrated. I don't know how many paintings and drawings I have left undone because I was not happy with the way they looked.
This is so much FUN!
Thanks for stopping by and taking a look.
Come back soon!

  1. I'm learning from you, Bev, and this is just too gorgeous! I'm going to try that blending tool texture idea although it may be a bit more difficult on very tiny areas. This one has a delightful 'stained-glass' feel which I just love. :-D
