Daises With Glass Vase
acrylic 16 x 16 inches
I'm going to take a few weeks or so to experiment with some different subject matter and techniques. I need a change. So, I expect I will have a lot of failures along the way.
I will be intermittently going back to my landscapes and my trusty palette knife, so I don't get too discouraged and also keep my gallery happy.
I know I will get frustrated but in the long run it will be good for me and my work. I will be doing still life's, figures and urban street scenes.
For this particular piece, I drew inspiration from Ingrid Christensen her blog and a flower arrangement from Jeremy Lipking. I didn't do either one justice. I do like the feel of this but I think I could have pushed the color more and used thicker paint...my vase is also lopsided. Not bad I think for my first attempt.
