View Full Version : Hollyhocks
08-17-2003, 10:54 PM
This is the first painting I've done in a long while. I used to paint as a kid but sort of forgot about it. Glad to discover this forum, I look forward to improving my skills (like, maybe learning how to draw...)
I did this using a $15 set of mini tubes: white, napthol crimson, ultramarine, cadmium yellow. No black though! (gee, can you tell?) :-)

Welcome to the acrylics forum Flopka.
These are definitely hollyhocks. You have a very nice painting here. What size is it?
I love the almost abstract feel and the colours you have used. I particularly like the background colouring.

Gorgeous colors--who needs black? I love hollyhocks. Do you have some? Great background colors and the flowers just pop!
