Painting Blossoms

I felt like painting today so I went out and bought some cheap acrylic paints and canvas boards.  I have been eager to start to learn how to paint flowers from the book Painted Blossoms by Carrie Schmitt since receiving her book as a Christmas present last year.  I do feel a bit vulnerable putting my first attempt here on the blog but it will be a good reference for me in the months/years ahead to see how (or if!) I improve over time.

I can say that I really went in the 'zone' whilst painting and enjoyed the process if not the overall result.  I shall paint over the bits I don't like once it has fully dried and redo them.

Lovely, Simone! I love the vibrant colours and the different patterns and textures you have used. It is full of joy - I wouldn't change anything:)

What fun! I recently brought that book home from the library, more just because I like looking at art books than that I wanted to do any of the projects. Flowers are always a good thing!

I hope you continue to paint, Simone! (Oh, and you have no reason to worry about sharing your painting... it's lovely!).

Hope you're having a creative and restful weekend!
