Get ready to paint some flowers via the alphabet. Any medium; any style.
Here are a few photos of flowers beginning with A (RIL) to get you started. Please use any of these or any other photos you have. Or you may want to paint from life.:thumbsup:
Anemones; amarylis; asters.......
More to come....

Extra challenge...if you feel like it.
1. paint in the style of your favourite artist of the past
2. paint in a medium you hardly ever use
3. paint in a loose and free style

Here's a quick little watercolour of the anemones.
Not the best scan but you get the idea.
I love anemones, and there are lots of good photos (commons) on Flickr as well as paintmyphoto.ning.com. So I hope to have another go before the end of October.
