Dec Floral Forum Project

Sent from my BlackBerry® powered by Virgin Mobile.



Quick update from the Black Berry. This was the Floral Forum project from Dec. As you can see I am a bit behind. LoL Great project concept and the references were beautiful. I chose a different reference pic and changed it. Solely for educational purposes. Need all the help I can get. This image is aprox. 8x10 which tends to be my favorite size. Painted using Derwent Inktense Watersoluble Pencils for the first time. Have to confess at first they were troublesome but the more I used them the better I liked them. The colors are very vibrant. Unlike watercolor pencils the color sets fast and permanent. So beware! Having said that, you can really achieve some nice layers of color. Overall very pleased(cause they were not cheap) and enjoy using them.

This was a test from the Blackberry. Took me a few tries but it is figured out now..lol
Thought for 2011 I would try something new. This is mainly just a place for me to post pics and comments of some of the hobbies and interests/"Simple Pleasures" I have. The spelling and grammar may be terrible so be forewarned.lol. This is just for fun. A place to share with friends, family and whomever else shares similar interests.

I plan to post some works in progress from the Wetcanvas Floral forum. There is a monthly challenge with some fantastic artists and people. You can find the web site at www.wetcanvas.com

I am by no means exceptionally talented, but simply enjoy what I do. Hope you enjoy it too!

With any luck a slide show of some past works of art will be online shortly!
