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.......

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


Happy painting!!

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.

Here's a vase of anemones by the artists Odilon Redon. From wikimedia. There's also a whole page of wonderful colourful paintings of anemones by Redon on google at:
