Flowers

In the last weeks, in between the other things, I've been experimenting with painting flowers - as studies and just for fun. As sources of reference I use pictures from last summer and a whole yearly issue of "Canadian Gardening" magazine. I have also been trying some ideas I learned from the blog of the artist Jean Haines, which I started visiting recently. She paints without pencil sketching, masking and other helpers, and her style is very lively and spontaneous. Her book is on my shopping list, though I first have to go through the two other books on watercolor painting I just bought...

Sono tutti belli, ma, come sempre, le rose sono le più belle. Elvi

Grazie, Elvi, sono contenta che vi sono piaciuti. Hai ragione, le rose sono sempre belle, non importa quale.
Thank you, Elvi, I'm glad you liked them. You are right, roses are always beautiful, no matter what.
