Lotus Flower <3

Tuesday, May 12, 2009

I suddenly understand how Art Nouveau took off so strongly in the 19th century. It has to be because of all those sexy, delicious, curvy lines.

I got a great big taste of it doing these lotus flowers. I was frankly surprised how quickly I took to them. I was enjoying them so much, I fear I put probably way too many petals ^^

The question now is..... do I stop where I am or add some watery washes in the background? I had planned to leave the background blank, but I unfortunately went outside the lines a few times and a wackground wash would cover that up completely. Is a puzzlement.

Put the painting somewhere where you can see it when you are relaxing - like across the room from your favorite chair - and eventually the painting will tell you what you have to do.

Lotus flowers are such a beautiful subject and you are doing them justice. I think Martha's advice is excellent!

It's wonderful as is, zeph. But then, I think a pale, watery wash would be lovely too.
